Traditional Colombian Music and Dance

WP Presents! in Conjunction with WP's Latinidad Heritage Celebration<br>La Cumbiamba eNeYé<br>Traditional Colombian Music and Dance


The powerfully rhythmic Afro-Colombian music of La Cumbiamba eNeYé is the heart of the traditional open-air gatherings known as cumbiambas, from which the ensemble takes its name. Performing the music of both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of Colombia, the group has been establishing itself as one of the finest ensembles of its kind in the United States. La Cumbiamba explores the Colombian musical styles of cumbia, puya and mapalé with the use of traditional instruments from the African Diaspora, as well as those of the Indians of Colombia and the European settlers. Under the direction of folklorist and multi-percussionist Martin Vejarano Avila, La Cumbiamba eNeYe´ puts on a thrilling performance. 

Light refreshments will be served.

Admission: Free!

*Please note: This event will take place rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be moved to the Shea Auditorium.
