Very Be Careful

by

Over the course of seven flabbergasting albums, this Los Angeles quintet (led by charismatic singer-accordionist Ricardo Guzman) has transformed Colombia and Venezuela’s mesmerizing funky cumbia, vallenato, parranda grooves into a bongo-furious urban sufferah’s sound that grabs your ass and doesn’t let go. Catch them here and/or track down the Greenpoint rooftop they’ll command on the Fourth.
