Combo Los Yogas was a short-lived early Colombian salsa band from Medellín directed and arranged by Aníbal José Angel Echeverri, the famous antioqueño keyboardist known as Aníbal Angel or simply Anán. Employing Barranquilla native Johnny Moré as his lead vocalist and a full combo with trumpet, trombone, congas and timbales, Los Yogas recorded a fantastic collection of cover tunes in the guaguancó, son, guajira, descarga, and cha-cha-chá rhythms. The sound is very raw and hard, something that makes this obscure 1968 Discos Fuentes record a sought-after collector’s item. Thanks to the inherent quality and execution of its repertoire, “Cañabrava” provides a wonderful snapshot of the influences and early development of the genre of salsa in 1960s Colombia. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl. Over the past few years we have been fortunate to work with Discos Fuentes on several projects compiled from their rich catalogue, and we are continuing our collaboration with the legendary Colombian label with a series of facsimile reissues of classic Fuentes LPs. Starting with “Cañabrava” by Combo Los Yogas, the upcoming months will bring new pressings of albums by Fruko y sus Tesos, Lisandro Meza y su Conjunto, Peregoyo y su Combo Vacaná, Pedro Laza y sus Pelayeros and many more… TRACKLIST Side 1 1.
