This Brooklyn based collective of musicians dedicated to making the dance floor happen will sure make Terrazaâ€™s floor and hanging stage tremble with their ferocious cumbias. The party that Cumbiagra brings to Terraza goes on until early morning. One cannot miss a nonstop dancing experience like this one.
Though Cumbiagra is largely inspired by the Colombian dance style known as cumbia, their music has developed into a unique synthesis of styles, drawing on the diversity of itâ€™s 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.
