CUMBIA FEST represents Latin American sound culture in Berlin – musical tradition meets the rhythms of city life. A colorful space where time stands still for one night that will transform entirely into a great altar celebrating the Day the of the Dead “El Día de los Muertos”. This special day, celebrated in Mexico and other countries in Latin America, combines ancient indigenous traditions and modern spirit. An inspiring encounter between life and death, dancing longside friends and family of present and past!
The musical highlights of the night are the two live acts:
COMBO CHIMBITA from New York with Colombian background blends musical traditions from Latin America and the Caribbean with Afro-futuristic styles and the spiritual awareness of the new generation. A mystical experience with elements of cumbia fused with tropical psychedelic funk and soul accompanied by a strong and hypnotic female voice!
KUMBIA BORUKA, the most promising cumbia band from on the European continent with a powerful sound influenced by the colombian cumbia of the sixties. Founded by the Mexican accordian player Hernan Cortés, who toured around the world alongside the cumbia legend Celso Piña, the band with 8 members creates a new wave cumbia – a hibrid, modern and conscious sound!
Special guests are TURBO SONIDERO, a DJ and music producer from San Jose, California who blends Rap/Hip-Hop with Mexican Cumbia Sonidera to create a new sound he calls “Tumbia” and TALACHAS, sounds that bring everybody to the dance floor!
The night is rounded off by the sounds of Selektor Bony from Mexico, resident of Cumbia Fest who will guarantee dance and good vibes all night long and Papo Yoplack from Peru, both established in Berlin´s music scene.
VJ Dr. Calavera will be in carge of the special video projections and will make you immerse into a sea of colours.
A special decoration, one of Berlin´s biggest offerings for the Day of the Dead, a Mezcal Lounge and Mexican Street food are further attractions of this special night.
