Cumbia is yet another of my musical homages to the rhythms and sounds of Colombia. This lively, syncopated musical expression was partly imported to Colombia from Africa during the slave trade back in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Since the Atlantic coast of Colombia was the main port of this trade, the area also became the cradle of Cumbia and many other African-influenced genres. My work explores the main rhythmical patterns of the Cumbia, as well as its modal-type melodies. However, I have also mixed it with jazz-influenced harmonies and salsa-flavored rhythms to reflect my own bi-cultural upbringing. All in all, I like to consider my Cumbia as a homage to the rich, lively and irresistible music of African-American cultures. - Alexander Klein.
