La Bomba is very pleased to announce the return of Bristol Cumbia dons Baila La Cumbia, plus very special guest DJ, Mercy Flores!
Balia La Cumbia is not just a band name… it’s a command! If you like your riffs horn-heavy and your rhythms contagious, this is a band you need to see. With searing horn lines and percussion you can feel right up your trouser legs, Baila la Cumbia will turn any average night out into a riotous party that you’ll never forget!
Formed in Bristol in 2007, surfing the early wave of the resurgence of interest in Colombian music styles. Baila La Cumbia have performed at many of our country’s great festivals & have filled the dancefloors at many special occasions. In fact, any cumbia band would be expected to bring the party to anywhere it’s needed. Porro (Colombian big band cumbia) and salsa tunes are woven into the repertoire and with Colombian vocalist Juan Carlos Arenas and his guitar some Chicha Vibes are suggested as well as Cuban flavours courtesy of Cuban trumpet maestro, Michel Patron (Asere). Local Latin legends, Jim Blomfield (keys), Lisa Cherian (congas) and Myke Vince (timbales), make rhythmic waves with the bass of Benji Muscat. The brass section also includes Bristol sax maestro Craig Crofton and on trombone the marvellous Joe Bradford.
Followed by - afterparty with La Bomba DJs; John Stapleton + Boom Operator keeping the vibe going until the morning. La Bomba play Cumbia, Afrobeat, Salsa, Latin Soul, Afrofunk, and much more, all from 100% original vinyl.
