About Latin show at Frost amphitheater!

 

Join us for a night of rhythmic celebration at CUMBIA!@Frost.

The dance floor will heat up with Vilma Diaz y La Sonora Dinamita, El Feeling, La Doña, and DJ Wonway Posibul.

Originating from Colombia, cumbia is a blend of sounds taken from indigenous, African, and Spanish music. Bring the entire family for arts and crafts, face painting, photo booth, cumbia dance lessons, and more.

Without La Sonora Dinamita, it’s possible cumbia never would have made it out of Colombia. The group formed in 1960 and spread the music across their home country. Then, after a breakup, they reformed in 1975 to bring the beat to the world. With a ten-piece brass section, the band has long been a showcase for male and female singers, and songs like “Mi Cucu,” “Maruja,” and “Cumbia de la Cadentia” have inspired younger performers for years—resulting in the 2021 collaborative album Transformando la Cumbia, recorded with Mon Laferte, Flor de Toloache, and more.

 

La Dona will also be performing!

 

La Doña is a solo artist, music educator, activist and cultural worker from San Francisco, CA.

La Doña, born Cecilia Cassandra Peña-Govea began her career at age seven playing trumpet, strings and percussion in her family’s conjunto. She is a student, teacher and preservationist of Latinx traditional arts like corrido, bolero, cumbia, and mariachi. In her compositions, she combines these ancestral traditions with contemporary diasporic musics like reggaeton, hip-hop and jazz. La Doña’s live performances are grounded in ceremony and social mobilization; she and her audiences sing, dance, cry and chant together, for collective healing and political action.

 

CUMBIA!@Frost is a collaboration between Stanford Live and Stanford Jazz Festival, with support from El Centro Chicano y Latino (Stanford University) and EPACENTER.
