With Afro-Caribbean roots and spread (and evolved) across Latin American and beyond, Cumbia is more than a music genre but a massive movement that conquered the world with its joy. Considered even a lifestyle for thousands.
MELBOURNE CUMBIA FEST 2023 will immerse you in a sensational tropical fantasy of colours and dance, with two of the main acts of cumbia in Australia: the traditional Afro-Colombian band La Descarga, and the Argentinian cumbia band The New Monos. Alongside dance performances and Latin raised DJs, we ensure you wont be able to stop moving.
Proudly presented by ISU TAKI and MAV, MELBOURNE CUMBIA FEST 2023 DJs will revisit a diversity of cumbia subgenres, including the very roots of cumbia, the traditional Afro-Caribbean music, and subgenres such as psychedelic cumbia chicha, cumbia Chilombiana, cumbia villera, Chilean neocumbia or Mexican cumbias rebajadas.
