THE SONG: Cumbia del Monte Fuji.
WHO: Minyo Crusaders and Frente Cumbiero.
WHY IT’S HOT… Tokyo-based ten-piece and wild Japanese folk-song fusionists, Minyo Crusaders join forces with Colombian cumbia radicals Frente Cumbiero on Minyo Cumbiero, a collaborative release that fuses ancient Japanese folk songs with heavyweight Colombian styles. This is one of those times descriptions do a disservice. Juxtaposing such disparate music styles really opens the song up.
