Arriba La Cumbia returns for 2011 after a killer year for 2010. The  Tropicalista NYE party with Movimientos was a big success, new global world music, ghetto bass, tropical beats (what ever you want to call it) and cumbia (both new and old) is definitely on the rise and for the new season and the new year we have loads of new bands lined and plenty of dates. First up for our January session is Nirk Molina with his fusion of pop vocals and traditional Colombian vallenato the traditional music of the Colombian rural people. He embodies the very soul of Latin America Vallenato, which originated in the Valle de Upar in northeastern Colombia, has roots in African, European, and native Colombian music. It uses native bamboo flutes, African-inspired drums, and German accordions.

For many years the music was looked down upon in Colombia because it was associated with poor people and minority groups.However, Molina and other artists have brought it into the mainstream and have also introduced it to audiences around the world. Molina and vallenato' s mix of cultures is the living proof of the equality of all people."
Hosting the proceedings and DJing as always is Russ Jones aka Hackney Globe Trotter and resident DJ Cal Jader of Movimientos. Upstairs is hosted by KTA and 1 TA-RAW fusing the spirit of the land of the rising sun with the global grooves.
