Frente cumbiero will take part of Roskilde Festival 2011. Accordion and Guacharaca loops will infect Denmark with some nu-Cumbia from Colombia this 30th June to 3rd July. Dates TBC.
Mario Galeano originally carries the name Frente Cumbiero (cumbia brother) on his own shoulders – but when he visits Roskilde Festival he comes as the band leader of a four-piece.
Frente Cumbiero is from the stronghold of cumbia, Colombia, but his versatile nature becomes extra obvious as he soon releases an album in collaboration with the dub master himself, Mad Professor.
Frente Cumbiero takes us on a journey through the many variations of the cumbia genre with instrumental, laptop-based party music that makes your heart jump and your pulse race.
