"No Cover: Cumbiagra"

"Naming your band after its genre communicates one of two things: you couldn't think of anything better (see the many funk bands with "funk" in their names); or you're announcing yourself as a standard-bearer of the style (Metallica, anyone?). Cumbiagra falls squarely in the latter category, having cemented their place in Brooklyn as a go-to group for the vintage cumbia music of Colombia and Mexico. Their first album of original material is due later this year."

"One of the coolest bands we have ever had in our parties. Great energy, and an exquisite blend of cumbia, vallenato and other Latin American Rhythms." --La Farra, NYC - WNYC

"Cumbia Sobre el Rio presents Cumbiagra"

Dancing to nuevo tropicalia on a boat just might be the perfect sound/venue combination. Que Bajo's Gecko Jones and Uproot Andy spin their ever-exuberant Afro Caribbean selections on deck, and they're teaming up with promoters La Farra to present a live cumbia band. There is no better local example of Columbia's native dance tradition than Brooklyn's Cumbiagra. - Village Voice


Cumbiagra "(Under) Covers"



Cumbiagra is a Brooklyn-based original cumbia band dedicated to making the dance floor happen. Since its creation in the summer of 2008, Cumbiagra has been hosting legendary dance parties throughout New York’s Lower East Side, Brooklyn, Mexico and beyond.

Though Cumbiagra is largely inspired by the Colombian dance style known as cumbia, its music has developed into a unique synthesis of styles, drawing on the diversity of its members and the rich musical environment in which they live. A typical Cumbiagra set might start with a slow, dirty cumbia, dip into a kinky reggae, then explode into a scorching merengue-ska, or a sexy salsa, before returning to their infectious cumbia style. Whatever they are playing, it is sure to please.
