Putumayo Presents: Women of Latin America
Tilda (Monster Magnet - 4-Way Diablo-(Advance))
Another in a long series of specifically themed world music albums well assembled and packaged by Putumayo, Women of Latin America is no exception to the exceptional standard of quality associated with the feel-good New York-based label. So in that sense it's not a totally representative sampling of Latin American music. It would have been nice if the compilers would have rounded up a song or two representing, say, Argentina or Guatemala. Then again, because there are only 11 songs here -- just short of 40 minutes of music total -- Putumayo doesn't give itself enough space for such a broad representation anyhow. The label could have doubled the amount of music here, technically speaking at least. The music that is here, however, is quite diverse and quite good. Every song is a highlight, and favorites will likely depend on what style of music you favor: there's the beat-driven MPB pulse of Adriana Calcanhotto's "Justo Agora," the much more traditional acoustic ranchera style of Lhasa 's "La Frontera," and the other songs, which all fall somewhere between those two musical extremes.

Many of these communities were the victims of the rubber boom and it is believed that at least , died. But, was President Santos right to apologise? After all, most of the atrocities happened when La Chorrera and other camps were part of Peruvian territory. In this extended, two-part article, LAB Editor Javier Farje tells the story of those terrible years that saw hundreds of indigenous communities decimated and sometimes destroyed by the greed inspired by the hunger for rubber.
