I can only find one minute and five seconds of footage of Colombian cumbia legend Lucho Bermúdez, but what a minute and five seconds it is: in addition to the first ten seconds of dancing, the vocalists appear on a merry-go-round near the end. I believe the recording is a rebroadcast from a performance some time in the mid-1950's, after Bermúdez returned from Mexico. 'Tis a shame there's not more footage of the great vocalists he employed but maybe something will pop up later.
