CumbiaSazo!

Grab some Afro x Naut goodness at this monthly dance party with other local artists and vendors. CumbiaSazo! works with local contributors that have included any and all DJs & bands with a well-intentioned relationship to cumbia as well as stalwarts from the local hip hop, salsa, balkan, reggae, beats, bomba & house scenes. Akin to audiovisual agitators like Argentina’s ZZK or Barcelona’s Folcore crews, it’s only natural that local global-minded artists & projects like CumbiaSazo are finally making strides in pushing a uniquely Chicago take on culture forward within the context of an Internet-savvy soundscape.
