In September 2008, Bareto released Cumbia on CD, an album that conquered wider markets. The complete record, a process that began at the end of 2007, is a tribute to a fundamental group of the Amazonian psychedelic, Juaneco y Su Combo. Bareto gives a modern and original sound to its classics, such as "Mujer Hilandera" and "Ya se ha muerto mi Abuelo", among others. In the other tracks like "Soy Provinciano", "El Aguajal", and "La Danza de Los Mirlos", by another Amazonian legend, Los Mirlos, the band continues its rescue of popular cumbia music. In a country where record piracy reigns, Cumbia received first a gold record and then a platinum one for its high sales. It won also the Luces Award for the Best Peruvian Music/Fusion Album awarded by the newspaper El Comercio and the artistic award of the APDAYC as the Revelation Artist of 2008. This same entity awarded Bareto as Artist/Pop Group of 2009 and as Artist/Fusion Group of 2010. Discos Eternos present a tenth anniversary edition of the album and it's first vinyl release. Remastered from the original master. Green vinyl; gatefold sleeve.
