La Tierra del Olvido

Sour purists might put former soap opera hunk Carlos Vives in league with Gloria Estefan in a ghastly campaign to water down purportedly "pure" folk music into pop product, but credit Carlos and his band, La Provincia, for some of the most exciting, challenging, and yes, authentic ethno-rock around. Expanding on the success of its predecessor, CLASICOS DE LA PROVINCIA, an homage to the masters and masterworks of Colombia's accordion-driven vallenato style, TIERRA DEL OLVIDO weighs in with funky, mostly original songs whose roots are in vallenato, cumbia, porro, and other styles from Colombia's Caribbean and Atlantic coasts. Mayte Montero, a gaita player from Totó La Momposina's troupe, joins La Provincia for the roots-fueled "Zoila," "Pa' Mayte," and others. "Rosa" is an ecstatic blend of Colombian roots and stadium hooks, exemplary of the high originality and fearless music making Vives and his band were capable of while sitting atop the pop heap.
