Magín Díaz y el Sexteto Gamerano

Another amazing jewel in South America just released this amazing traditional album and making also his sound up to date with original remixes by top latin american musicians & Dj's. We talk about Magín Díaz el cantador de Gamero. Originally from Gamero, Bolivar and traditional culture and with a family tradition of Bullerengue, dancers and singers.

Born in 1922 as a prodigy Child with just 9 years old Magin became a multi-instrumentalist (Tambor, tambora, maracas, guacharaca, etc.), with just 13 years old he compose “ROSA”  one of the most famous songs in Colombia but sadly all his credits of the song were taken away. He also wrote: A Pilá el arroz, Me Amarás Me Querrás.  Int he 40's was called to be part of Orquesta “La Billos Caracas Boys” singing alongside of Cheo García in Venezuela.  He couldn't resist be away from Colombia and came back to record 3 albums for Irene Martinez (A Pilá el Arroz, Rosa y el Mambaco) ; but always lived on her shadow and never was mention as the brainchild, composer and arranger of this music. This album is a tribute to a Cantador and composer of the lowlands of los montes de María, A great heritage of traditional colombian music and amazing male singer of all times.

Thanks to Konn recordings and Mr Toe for this great album; now Magin Diaz could be recognized as one of the most important artists in Colombia of all times.
