Ciudad Reina and RedLine Contemporary Art Center present: Una Historia de la Cumbia! An engulfing evening filled with Cumbia history, dancing, and music from el pasado, presente, y futuro.
As part of RedLine’s Roots Radical exhibition program, RedLine and Ciudad Reina present Una Historia de la Cumbia!, an event honoring the cultural giant that is the cumbia.
Featuring KUVO’s Super Sonido host La Molly and El Jaguar hailing from Oaxaca, MX, the evening kicks off with an interactive historical overview of the cumbia, from its beginnings to today.
Following the presentation, local cultural icon Magally Rizo Luna will lead a dance class to be followed by a cumbia party from 8-9 PM.
Expect to be surprised and enchanted by music selections highlighting old favorites to bizarre and modern interpretations of everyone’s favorite rhythm, Cumbia!
Free for members, $5 suggested donation for non-members. This is a family-friendly event.
About Ciudad Reina
Ciudad Reina, a Denver arts collaborative, was formed in 2022 to speak to Denver’s large and often overlooked Latine population, including them in the artistic heartbeat of this city.
Taking its name from a Spanish translation of Denver’s nickname “Queen City of the Plains,” Ciudad Reina looks to bring musicians from all over the world into some of Denver’s favorite local haunts, simultaneously showing off the vibrant and thriving Latine neighborhoods throughout the city.
