A compilation of sound sources published by the Ecuadorian Quito label The CAIFE in 1960-1968 was released in September 2021 by Honest Jon's, a label specializing in excavated sound sources.

Popular music such as rock and Kumbia and the oil boom have brought about major changes in the music industry as a whole, but in Ecuador just before they had an impact, domestic music had reached its final golden age.This work is a compilation work containing such the last Bohemian music.

Musical styles such as Tonada, Albaso, Yarabi, Carnaval, San Juanito, Yambo with Inca roots, and Pasillo based on the waltz of Vienna are transmitted to the Caribbean Sea via Portugal and Spain, and based on them, they are unique. Includes 24 folklores that have built up musicality.Comes with a luxurious gatefold specification and a full-color booklet.

Text by Honest Jon's Records:

"A dazzling survey of the last, bohemian flowering of the so-called Golden Era of Ecuadorian musica national, before the oil boom and incoming musical styles — especially cumbia — swept away its achingly beautiful, phantasmagorical, utopian juggling of indigenous and mestizo traditions.
Forms like the tonada, albazo, danzante, yaravi, carnaval, and sanjuanito; the yambo, with roots in pre-Incan ritual, and the pasillo, a take on the Viennese waltz, arriving through the Caribbean via Portugal and Spain.
Exhumations like the astoundingly out-there organist Lucho Munoz, from Panama, toying with the expressive and technical limits of his instrument; and our curtain-raiser Biluka, who travelled to Quito from Rio, naming his new band Los Canibales in honor of the late -twenties Cannibalist movement back home, dedicated to cannibalising other cultures in the fight against post-colonial, Eurocentric hegemony. He played the ficus leaf, hands-free, laying it on his tongue. periods living on the street, in rags, when he wasn't in the CAIFE studio recording his chamber jazz-from-space, with the swing, elegance and detail of Ellington's small groups, crossed with the brassy energy of ska — try Cashari Shunguito — And an enthralling other-worldliness.
Utterly scintillating guitar-playing, prowling double bass, piercing dulzaina, wailing organ, rollicking gy violin, brass, accordion, harps, and flutes. Bangers to get drunk and dance to. Slow songs galore to drown your sorrows in, with wildly sentimental lyrics drawn from the Generacion Decapitada group of poets (who all killed themselves); a, but reined in, like the best fado.
Fabulous music, like nothing else, exquisitely suffused with sadness and soul.

Sumptuously presented, in a gatefold sleeve and printed inners, with a full-size, full-colour booklet, with wonderful photos and excellent notes. Limpid sound, too, courtesy of original reels in Quito, and Abbey Road in London; pressed at Pallas . "
