What is Cumbia?

Cumbia is a musical rhythm born in the XIX century in Latin America out of the mix of African, Indian, and Spanish cultures. It began in Colombia, but since the 1960s it has started to spread throughout the whole continent – with each country creating their own fusions and versions. From Chile to México, there is cumbia. From classical Colombian songs to contemporary DJs all over the world, there is cumbia. It is a sensual sound with a beating heart of drums that can make anyone dance.
