A few days ago I received from our friend from Spain Ramon Noriega Puente a carnaval LP from the Carnaval '65, but this one is taking place in the city of Barranquilla in Colombia.
I must confess that I have had no idea that such a manifestation existed at all, but my ignorance rapidly decreased after having enough common sense to consult Wikipedia:
"Carnaval de Barranquilla - Colombia's most important folklore celebration, and is the biggest carnival in the world behind The Rio de Janeiro's Carnival. The carnival has traditions that date back to the 19th century."
Well, here is the opportunity to compare the two biggest carnivals in the world (by the way, more Brazilian carnaval music is in the package which is transferred to my PC as I write).
Enjoy the comparison by enjoying:
A1. Cumbia instrumental (Aníbal Velásquez) Aníbal Velásquez y Su Conjunto
A2. El chinito Carrelo (José Velásquez) José Velásquez con Aníbal Velásquez y Su Conjunto
A3. La cremallera (Nicolás Ortiz) Pepe Molina con Rosendo Martinez y Su Conjunto
A4. Muñeca e´burro (Carlos Román) Morgan Blanco y Su Conjunto
A5. Mar azul (Nono Narváez) Nono Narváez con Los Ñeros
