Cumbia has taken the dance floors worldwide but at this point it might be crucial to remember where everything started, to be enchanted again with its original sound, with magic of gaita flute, the calling of the Llamador drum and the nostalgic poetic voice inspired by Los Montes de María majestic landscape. Toño García: el último cacique was recorded to honor Manuel Antonio "Toño" García, one of living legends of cumbia, and brought together San Jacinto´s gaita and cumbia royalty to pay tribute to his most influential and representative gaita flute player.
The band, directed by Gabriel Torregrosa, has taken the roots sound of cumbia around the world and this record is the result of a band that has preserved its legacy generation after generation to deliver a breathtaking sound that can only be achieved through time. The record presents Yeison Landero, Andres Landero´s grandson, performing for the first time with the band. Alongside master Carmelo Torres, perhaps the last two remaining guardians of the sabanero accordion legacy to bring the full spectrum of cumbia sound to the production.
