Join us for CUMBIA FEST, a Las Vegas Spanish Language Music Festival, including high-energy performances from three popular bands:

  • a Sanora Santanera,  an orchestra playing tropical music from Mexico with over 60 years of history. The band was founded in 1955 by Carlos Colorado in the state of Tabasco, creating its own signature Cumbia sound.

  • La Sonora Dinamita, the iconic Columbian band, is credited with the spread of honey-tinged Cumbia sounds throughout Latin America. Their 1981 hit song “Mi Cucu” has become a party anthem, and is fun to sing and dance to.

  • Sonora Tropicana adds a tropical flare to the classic Cumbia sound. The group, which has been performing to massive crowds for 25 years, won the Furia Musical Award for Best Tropical Group two years in a row.

Don’t miss your chance to attend CUMBIA FEST in Las Vegas on April 21, 2023.

What is Cumbia Music?

Cumbia is a style of Latin music that originated in Colombia and is now popular throughout South America, Central America, and the United States. Traditional Cumbia music uses a blend of African, Native American, and European styles and uses musical instruments such as drums, flutes, maracas, and accordions.

Cumbia, as a music genre, has many different styles based on where it’s played.  Countries across Latin America — like Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Ecuador, Cuba, and Mexico — all have their own unique styles and additions to the music. Cumbia music is most discernible for being percussion-heavy, with a signature double beat played on a maraca or drum, and flutes that carry the melody.
