KUMBIA CL! Cumbia from Amsterdam. Combines the eclectic character of Amsterdam with the roots of Chilean Cumbia. Proud to play the nastier cumbia in town!
The need to express our cultural influences gained along our years on the road, has taken us to mix in this band some of the best known Latin rhythms, combined with Caribbean rhythms such as reggae and ska.

Biography

KUMBIA CL is a band that was formed in Amsterdam in 2012, by Marco Carrillo Coppia, Chilean musician and composer, with songwriter Takuri Adasme, also of Chilean origin.

The need to express our cultural influences gained along our years on the road, has taken us to mix in this band some of the best known Latin rhythms, combined with Caribbean rhythms such as reggae and ska, a mixture that forms the basis of the Group's sound. The diversity of nationalities in the band, (Chile, Holland, Brazil, Ecuador), also contributes to the particular sound of KUMBIA CL.

After a successful start in December 2012, with performances in Paradiso, Winston Kingdom, Landjuweel Festival, FestiValderAa, Amsterdam Roots Festival, Melkweg, Costa del Soul Festival, Puur Plezier Festival, Hemeltjelief! Festival, Bevrijdings Festival Groningen, Queensday Festival Pllek, Queensnight Festival Nieuwmarkt, and the Museumplein in Amsterdam the band is planning to expand its horizons. KUMBIA CL is planning to release an EP mid 2014 and tour around Europe in the summer of 2014.

In just a few months time without releasing an album KUMBIA CL has played important festivals and venues in the Netherlands. They played festival-closing slots due to their past performances.
