Last summer Jace Clayton went down to Argentina to write a story on cumbia. He came back with cumbia fever, posting regularly about the genre on his blog. But the unchecked wilderness of one genre-smashing website apparently could not focus his cumbia love and recently he and a few other accordion obsessives have started a cumbia-only blog, La Congona New Cumbia. (Yes that sentence uses the word "cumbia" three times. So what? Cumbia, cumbia, cumbia! We're maniacs!) Check the blog for cumbia news, videos, downloads, mixes and maps.
