Rock, vallaneto, cumbia, ska, zydeco, and more fuel Colombian singer/songwriter Carlos Vives's latest party, aptly titled Rock de mi Pueblo. From the festive opening track "Como Tu," Vives bounces nonstop among rhythms, music styles, and instruments to keep the celebration running red-hot. On "La Maravilla," Vives sings about a woman who knows how to enjoy life while his band fuses cumbia dance grooves. Heavy percussions drive "Gallito de Caramelo," a rocking tune about willing to go anywhere to wait for the right person. Vives slows the pace on the melancholy ballad "Voy A Olvidarme de mi," with its where-are-you-now lament. While mixing folk vallenato with rock is his specialty, this collection is Vives's most energetic, fusing blues-rock sentiment, more electric guitars and tribal fever for an instant winner.
