Los Angeles Cumbia Festival at the Aratani

Aratani Theatre (JACCC)

244 S San Pedro Street., Los Angeles, 90012


Homegrown and uniquely urban---four fast-rising LA based Cumbia bands break out to a broader audience at the Aratani World Series. This fresh take on Cumbia evokes the intricate musical history, political landscape, and sensuous soul of deep Cumbia rhythms while giving birth to a new musical genre on our city streets. Hand-picked by Radio producer Betto Arcos, these Latin Indie artists move like the wind through musical worlds with heart thumping neotropic offerings that blend classic Colombian Cumbia grooves with electric and surf guitar riffs, jazz, Salsa, Afro-Latin, big band brass, reggae, and Dj culture. This unique musical hybrid reflects the parallels that exist in the Barrio pulse across Latin America.
