Many thanks.  I have increasing interest in Latin forms on DBA.

The "Cumbiambero" featured is Carmelo Torres. His mentor was Andres Landero, a Cumbia legend.

I heard part of this programme driving home tonight. So interesting, I forgot to stop for milk. I love the phrase “ Accordions came from Germany, but now they are Colombian”.

Here's an extremely talented 17 year old vallenato accordionist and singer from Colombia.

My word!  I think some of us should go to her for lessons in melodeon face.  Such a pretty smile.  She also seems to be playing the instrument back to front and upside down.

Elderly amateur musician hoping to stave off dementia by learning to play the melodeon.  Main instrument a Tommy, also D/G and G/C pokerworks, and a G/C Benny.  A single row 2 stop Hohner, and a new addition to the free reedery, a well used Hohner c-system chromatic button accordion.

There is a fantastic movie about this very subject called The Wind Journeys (Los viajes del viento).  One of my favorite movies, it has a pace more like a Sergio Leone western than the fast paced movies that dominate the screen.  The stars of the film (not to dis the actors) are the scenery of Columbia, the wind itself, and the accordion itself.  I highly recommend it.  Here’s a scene that really captures the essence of the film, watch the whole thing as it gets really good about halfway through.
