Cumbiatón is an intergenerational cultural movement which utilizes music as a vessel to heal and uplift oppressed hood communities. Cumbiatón has rooted itself in the beautiful barrio of Boyle Heights, California and has branched out to cities like San Francisco, Seattle and New York. Cumbiatón’s vision in all 4 cities is to center womxn and queer people of color both on the dance floor and in the DJ booth. We center our collective experiences to create culturally rich events by us, for us. We do this because la Cumbia es Cultura.
