Cumbia Ya! is one of the few orchestras in Europe wich bring the excitement of cumbia, the famous Colombian rhythm. Composed of eleven musicians from Argentina, Colombia and French, the orchestra carries audiences of all backgrounds on the track ignited a dance hall in South America.

The great classics of Colombian culture mingle with compositions of the group to celebrate what the great Lucho Bermudez had already announced: the marriage between the traditional Colombian music and jazz big bands. Art and the complicity of jazz percussion applied to the haunting music that makes this festive Cumbia is even more appealing.
