Proyecto Cumbion was founded in 2021 with the goal of sharing the sounds of Cumbia Colombiana in New Mexico. Inspired by the great pioneers of Cumbia Colombiana like Andres Landero, Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, Celso Piña and Yeison Landero, Proyecto Cumbion aims to fuse these styles to create a vibrant dancing atmosphere.

Paying homage to the original Cumbia genre, audiences will find themselves immersed in Afro-polyrhythmic and Indigenous Colombian beats driven by a mix of traditional and modern instruments. Our interactive shows will bring you to your feet and transport you to San Jacinto, Colombia the land of Cumbia!


The members of Baracutanga represent four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, USA) and blend South American ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility. Baracutanga’s exciting and distinct Latin flavor keeps crowds dancing and always wanting more!  The band creates songs that cross linguistic and cultural barriers, building bridges between the south and the north, while also overcoming the barriers of discrimination and promoting intercultural experiences that empower Latinos and all people with a positive message of self-affirmation.

Baracutanga‘s live shows are joyous, intense and explosive, propelled by the sounds of Andean flutes, charango, accordion, vibes, horns, guitar, bass, drums, vocal harmonies, and an array of percussion, often joined on stage, by Afro-Peruvian and Latin dancers.  Baracutanga has received multiple regional awards and recognitions and has performed across the Southwest, Rocky Mountains, and California, with stops in Calgary, NOLA, Austin and México.
