The evening will celebrate the routes and roots of cumbia sonidera and Dutty Artz and Songs From Home’s Â¡Un Saludo! Mexican Soundsystem Cumbia in LA, a bordercrossing compilation selected from the legendary label, Discos Barba Azul.
The album showcases how California became a nerve center of contemporary Mexican cumbia with Discos Barba Azul as the genreâ€™s most significant U.S. label. The album highlights cumbia sonideraâ€™s dynamic styles from rootsy Afro-Colombian accordion, to synthy Andean covers, to guacharaca-infused Bollywood.
Â¡UN SALUDO! Saturday August 26, The Legionnaire Saloon, Oakland, $7, 10:30pm.
