October 23, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us this Saturday in-person for a free workshop and performance, celebrating the 20 year anniversary of La Cumbiamba NY.
The powerfully rhythmic and melodic Afro-Indigenous-Colombian music of La Cumbiamba NY recreates the traditional open-air Cumbia gatherings known as cumbiambas, the ensemble’s namesake. With traditional instruments such as the indigenous Gaita flutes and the Afro-Colombian drums, the group, led by multi-instrumentalist, composer and educator Martin Vejarano, has established itself as one of the finest Cumbia ensembles in the US.
