Cumbia All Stars

They come from the legendary bands of Peruvian Cumbia and, after 40 years, they meet again to play finally together the music they participated in creating! Few musical styles have been so unanimously popular as Cumbia in Peru. Planting its roots at the capitalĀ“s suburbs among the children of immigrants and in remote cities of the Amazonian Jungle, its mesmerizing melodies have been in the air for more than forty years.

Cumbia All Stars is a tribute to such a phenomenon and at the same time a journey in search of the authentic sounds of Peruvian Cumbia. With its bold guitars and jerky beats, Cumbia All Stars dusts off majestically the best songs of the genre and innovates composing new melodies while remaining loyal to its traditional background. In this project the living legends of Cumbia are present: great musicians who were involved in the creation of this new rhythm back in the 1970's and who have kept on playing it during more than four decades.
