Cumbia! at the U

October 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm MDT


Bringing Cumbia to the U!

Whether you’re in a convenience store in Ushuaia, the southernmost tip of Argentina, Quito, Colombia, Mexico City, or East L.A., you’re likely to hear cumbia blaring from a stereo. In Latin America, no musical style has been as widespread or unifying than this. With origins in an African dance that came to Colombia through the slave trade, this musical backbone of Latin America knits together many different regional cultures through one common beat. Travel through time and across borders on this rhythmic journey through the origins of cumbia and lest bring this artform to the University of Utah!
