Exclusive first London show for the Cumbia All Stars hot on the release of their debut album release via World Village / Harmoni Mundi (released in the UK June 2014). The band features members of some of the legendary bands of Peruvian Cumbia and, after almost 40 years, they meet again to play together the music they participated in creating! Presented in association with Subsonic Routes and The Forge.
This musical wave was a phenomenon that could only take place during the sixties in Peru. A product of the effervescent environment of a decade of rediscovered freedoms, it takes roots in remote cities of Amazonia, and among children of immigrants who gave birth to a musical genre that is now an integral part of the Peruvian identity: Cumbia Huaracha, Amazonian Cumbia or simply Cumbia Peruana.The Cumbia All Stars are among the creators of Peruvian Cumbia and they interpret, during their concerts, the most emblematic songs and the forgotten treasures of the repertory.
In July 2013, they travelled to Europe for the first time, on a successful tour of 18 dates in 10 different countries, among the most famous festivals of european summer, such as Festival Polé Polé (BE), the WasserMusik Festival (DE), the Amsterdam Roots Festival (NL), La Mar de Musicas (SP)…
