Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/los-gaiteros-de-san-jacinto/un-fuego-de-sangre-pura-from-colombia/latin-world/music/album/smithsonian Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3WMheI6sygMmNaqbAg5d6M?si=xBcUbZHoRLKG0YtwP4X3Gw With 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura (A Fire of Pure Blood),' the roots of the cumbia thrive in the music of Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia's violence-torn Caribbean hinterlands. The sounds of long-tubed gaita flutes, unique drums, and maraca stoke the fire of the cumbia and of other regional dances—the fast-paced puya and porro, the cadential gaita corrida, and the bullerengue. Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, the senior statesmen of their tradition, are an animated emblem of Colombian nationhood and a resilient fountainhead for some of Latin America's favorite dance rhythms.
