...'trust all's well.
"Tumba Y Quema' provided a very interesting listen, from the opening track, the chugging, bluesy "Ella, to the zouk-and-bachata-flavoured "Ahi E", and the punchy pop-sounding "Frio Martirio".
My pick: the infectious flute-and-percussion driven "Son Maloso".
I'll have fun with this.

DAVID DELY & TUMBA Y QUEMA: SON MALOSO – 13 songs ranging from cumbia, porro, bullerengue, paseo vallenato, to son montuno, gahú, capoeira, conga and merengue, recorded by David Dely (lead and background vocals, guitar, bass, Native American flutes, percussion), Claudia Andrade (lead and background vocals), Shangó Dely (ethnic drums, percussion, Colombian gaita flute, background vocals), Márton Takács (didjeridoo, drum programming – he´s also the sound engineer of the recording and mixing), Bálint Kovács (solo and effect guitars), György Szappanos (bass), and Norbert Kovács (drums). There are also two guest musicians: Istvan Dely (congalegres), and Murad Abbas (trombone). David’s original paintings supply the framework and inspiration for Máté Jakab’s beautiful and stylish artwork. Mastered at Tam Tam Studio, produced by David Dely, coproduced by Shangó Dely, executive produced by Márton Takács, David Dely and Shangó Dely, published by Chamaleon Records, this album is most certainly a unique gem of the cultural globalization of our days and, more specifically, of a new COLOMBO-HUNGARIAN CONNECTION.
