“…there is a groove on this Stronghold Sound release running from Morocco to Medellin that recommends it to your ears… I think these acts are SF Bay Area but have global roots…and they cast a wide musical net. I am glad these artists are getting their act together and recording, as they have long had a strong grasp on what gets a crowd moving.” – muzikifan
Since forming the band Wontanara recently, Bongo’s been up to quite a bit, including several tracks that we’ll be posting here from Wontanara next month most probably. Below is one of these tracks, “Jah Protect My People” posted here as a remix by dub Snakr featuring Karamou on the Kora. Also, a little impromptu diddy for your enjoyment.
Move Yo Body (interlude)
Okay, so there is way more to say about the history of where the original of this song came from and what others have done to it than we will share right here, but Juan Data has chronicled it well in his blog so check that out here: The Hard Data, other wise enjoy what hopefully is the first of many cumbias we will put out.

“A wild skanking, funky gumbo of world sounds that you wouldn’t think had creeped in so well. Music from the streets just like the first generation of everything from reggae to house, it crackles with the passion of uprising, escape and plugs into the universal groove. The first volume of a two volume set that is going to showcase the hottest and hardest, this is some wild funky stuff that just doesn’t know when to quit.” – MidWest Record
