100 Greatest Cumbia Songs

Criteria: - These are the most important songs in the history of cumbia music, ranked by acclaim, influence, and popularity in the different sub-genres. Because cumbia is dispersed and localist, many songs were popularized by different performers depending on the country (although Colombia remains most recognized for being the country of origin). The list collects many of the original songs and exceptionally picks cover songs to recognize some important exponents of the genre. No more than one version of a given song was included.

100 Greatest Cumbia Songs
Background: Cumbia is a popular music genre originated in Colombia. During the 1940s, cumbia expand through Latin America. At first, cumbia songs were incorporated in the repertory of big bands of "música tropical". In the late 60's and 70's, in Peru and Mexico begin to adapt to local styles of music and in some cases with rock n roll influences (for example, the use of electric guitar). Pioneering Colombian record label Discos Fuentes, established in 1934, scored a starring role in the spread of cumbia music through the decades and carrying a cult devotion in North America and Europe. 

Since the 90s, the genre is established in the Mexican community in the United States due to the exponents of the Regional Mexican Music. One of the biggest stars of this movement was the Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla, who brought cumbia to Latin pop world. In Argentina, the genre extends from the Andes to the capital and appears "cumbia villera", that incorporate codes of the slums of Buenos Aires.

Today, cumbia has diversified and incorporated much of the contemporary Latin American music. One of its last sub-genres is the digital cumbia, a DJ-oriented style.
