Cumbia is an exhuberant music born on the coast of Colombia, mixing African and indigenous elements. We go the Copacabana, New York’s premiere Latin dance club, to hear cumbia maestro and accordion king Lisandro Meza in concert. Other featured cumbia maestros are Andres Landero and Mexico’s Celso Pina.
Afropop has long been a major fan of Cumbia. Want to hear more of this fantastic music? Check out the links below!
