KUMBIA QUEERS

KUMBIA QUEERS
Punk Infused Cumbia aka Tropical-Punk
The powerful band from Buenos Aires returns to Europe to seduce us once again with their cocktail of cumbia, rock, and hip-hop, with critical and reflective lyrics that talk about fun, love and it’s opposite, and their passion for creative leisure and dance.

Nearly 10 years ago, these musicians were bored of the punk rock scene, and decided to do something completely different: Cumbia. What started out as something just for fun, led eventually to the formation of Kumbia Queers.
Kumbia Queers describe their style as 1000% Tropi Punk – a wild mixture of Afro-Cuban and Latin American Cumbia influences, queerness and punk spirit. At a time when the electronic and world music scenes from New York to Europe are in the process of discovering Cumbia music, the chicas are reinterpreting Latin American heart-ache and macho posturings, bringing fun and politics together in their own wild style.

Las Kumbia Queers are now a five piece combo. As Ali Gua Gua (one of the two singers and founding member) devotes herself to her solo career, more voices are to be heard: Juana Change takes the leading vocals while Flore Linyera and Pat Combat Rocker (keyboardist and bass player) also sing.

Founded as a series of workshops, talks and concerts for the empowerment of women in Central American and Mexican hip-hop culture, Somos Guerreras was soon consolidated as a collective of seasoned artists comprised of rappers Rebeca Lane (Guatemala), Nakury (Costa Rica) and Audry Funk (Mexico). From the beginning, the crew has focused on providing spaces of reflection, honing in on the challenges faced by women in hip-hop to find creative solutions and establish new alliances.
