This will be more than just a concert; it will be a celebration of inclusivity and freedom, where everyone is invited to let loose and join the party. The Kumbia Queers’ story goes back to the year 2007 when these musicians got bored of the punk rock scene, and decided to do something completely different: cumbia. What started out as something just for fun, led eventually to the formation of Kumbia Queers. They describe their style as 1000% Tropi Punk – a wild mixture of Afro-Cuban and Latin American cumbia influences, queerness and punk spirit. Their latest album Fiesteria was released in spring 2023 and remains loyal to cumbia, but also walks on new paths including more electronic vibes and urban styles.

Kumbia Queers are also scheduled to perform on Saturday, June 22nd at Riis Park, 6100 W. Fullerton as part of the Levitt VIBE Belmont Cragin Music Series produced by the ILCC. They are scheduled to hit the stage right behind Riis Park’s field house at 2:00 pm. This concert is free.
