La Roma Records presents Frente Cumbiero Meets Mad Professor, a collaboration between two legendary artists. With a large and successful career, Frente Cumbiero has become one of the biggest representatives in the exploration of cumbia's sonic identity in Latin America. Headed by Colombian songwriter and producer Mario Galeano Toro (also founding member of Ondatrópica and Los Pirañas), Frente Cumbiero is recognized as a spearhead of Colombia's new cumbia movement. In addition to releases on labels such as Names You Can Trust, Vampisoul (Meets Mad Professor (VAMPI 136LP, 2011)), Okra/Tokyo Sabroso and La Roma Records, Frente Cumbiero's catalog is also marked by successful contributions with legendary musicians such as Mad Professor and Kronos Quartet, which have proved the project to be on its way to expanding the frontiers of cumbia and Latin music. After a phase as an electronic act consisting of Galeano exclusively, Frente Cumbiero has returned to its traditional quartet format, which focuses in the most powerful bangs of tropical sound on the dance floor, combining two wind instruments, live percussion and electronic sounds/dubbed sequences. Active for over a decade and going way beyond the concept of cumbia as fashion, Frente Cumbiero are the true followers of the guacharaca calling. A timeless classic of the new Colombian cumbia, Frente Cumbiero Meets Mad Professor is a brilliant encounter between cumbia and dub. Five 7" box set includes unreleased tracks and a patch. Edition of 500.
