Cumbia River Band’s music draws from a festive repertoire of Colombian Cumbia and Riverside music. Their sounds will take you back to the golden years of Cumbia as well as inspire you to dance and contemplate the joy and energy that this Cumbia River brings along. Featuring tuba, accordion, clarinet, percussion, guitar and voices, the band delivers a captivating performance, which honors both traditional and contemporary sounds.

“The Cumbia River Band somehow manages to create a distinctly New York style of cumbia, one that has an elegant jazzy swing to it. Of course it’s still true to the cumbia’s roots as a dance form.” John Schaefer, radio host at WNYC

“If, after yesterday’s show, you found yourself suddenly inspired to look into available cumbia dance classes, you aren’t alone! Thank you again to Cumbia River Band for bringing your vibrancy to our stage and setting the tone for the second half of our season! “  Symphony Space
