Image: 1596614 Names You Can Trust presents the debut vinyl release from Romperayo, a new band led by drummer Pedro Ojeda (Los Pirañas, Frente Cumbiero, Ondatrópica). Further expanding the burgeoning live music scene of Bogota, Colombia and featuring many of the same talented family of musicians, Romperayo similarly takes its musical cues from Colombia's rich musical history. These recordings dive deep into the country's coastal traditions with a unique present day twist via the inspired percussion of bandleader Ojeda, a melting pot of rhythms played with his own manic flare and style.

El Busetero Buscapleitos is deeply inspired by the rhythms and textures that made their way through the Caribbean and into the local picos (sound systems). A nod to musical outfits of the 1970's such as Wganda Kenya & Son Palenque, the song is a mixture of styles from West Africa, Trinidad and Haiti married with popular Colombian rhythms of the Caribbean coast like cumbia and chande.

Que Viva La Vida y Que Muera La Muerte derives from the other coastal region of Colombia, the Pacific. Inspired by the Afro-Colombian form curralao, traditionally played with wooden drums, shakers & a marimba, it is here updated and electrified in a stripped down tribute to the grand orchestra of Peregoyo y su Combo.
