MONO: “Cumbia del Monte Fuji” by Minyo Crusaders and Frente Cumbiero.

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.

WANT MORE? Sample and support.
