All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
As a label that issues world music compilations, Putumayo is wildly successful -- 27 million albums and counting. They didn't get there way without doing serious market research about everything from curation and track selection to socio-economic indicators. With Putumayo Presents: Latin Beat (and its companion African Beat) it's easy to suss that they are serious about marketing to an internet-savvy, younger generation of listeners. These releases also marked the label's push toward digital marketing. Latin Beat contains a dozen tracks from recording artists who hail from Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, Germany, the U.K., the U.S., and New Zealand. The music ranges from more traditionally oriented son material à la "Guajira" from Britain's Grupo Lokito, to 21st century salsa extrapolations like "La Cumbia Lounge" from Charanga Cakewalk (U.S.) and "Pelo Shao" from Ecuador's Sarazino. Then there's the crazy IDM from Cuba's Moneda Dura, who use the voice of the deceased Cuban legend Ibrahim Ferrer on "Goza." Colombia's Mariposa Solar close the set out by wedding traditional cumbia to a deceptively organic weave of pop and electronica. This is a mixed bag to be sure, but it's not without considerable charm.
