Los Miticos del Ritmo (feat. Quantic) [Soundway Records]
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Soundway Records
The Soundway debut of Will “Quantic” Holland’s cumbia outfit is a kind of live reenactment of Holland’s own study of Colombian musical history since moving there in 2007 -- and of his engagement with it. Los Miticos is awash in the vintage tropi-cumbia of the 1960s, from the musicians (all respected locals with long histories) to the all-analog recording. But it’s also playfully anachronistic: Tucked in among classic cumbia and vallenato cuts are ironic, cumbia-fied covers of Queen and Michael Jackson and tracks like “Noche de Tamborito,” which works in bits of klezmer to jazz.
