L.A. CUMBIA FESTIVAL: featuring Buyepongo, Viento Callejero, La Chamba and Eduardo Martinez y Su Palo Cuero
Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 7:00PM

Aratani Theatre
244 S. San Pedro Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Part rock concert, part world music. Homegrown and uniquely urban. The Cumbia Festival features four of L.A.’s newest and hottest working bands who evoke the intricate music history, politics and sensuous soul of the deep cumbia rhythms and give birth to a new musical genre on the streets of Los Angeles. Hand-picked by radio producer Betto Arcos, these Latin indie artists move like the wind through musical worlds with spellbinding offerings of electric and psychedelic surf guitar riffs, salsa, Afro-Latin, reggae, funk and dance inducing cumbia grooves. This unique musical hybrid reflects the parallels that exist in the barrio pulse across Latin America.


4 –7 pm: Community Marketplace in the Plaza.

6:15 – 6:45 pm: Pre-Performance Conversation with Betto Arcos

7 pm: Performance
