So we tried to rest but the people have spoken. With overwhelming positive response from 2014's "Verano de Cumbia" parties, CumbiaSazo finds a new home at Double Door where our beloved night of dancing plans to stretch it's legs, wax creative, & explore vibes new & old from the Latin@ diaspora. We’ve rarely operated in fall weather but now more than ever it seems a space is needed for getting it in and sweating it out. We invite you to join us Saturday, September 27th, as artists connect the dots between music & community and celebrate C-C-C-Cuuuumbia alongside other worldly & bass-heavy music of the peoples. Part of proceeds will benefit ArtReach at Lillstreet as we get down and support people doing what they do in a spirit of identity & joy through music. With demand we'll be having cumbia/dance lessons early as well, so keep an eye out for that. ╲╱╲

Not so bad for an adolescent mind-set using Audacity and Fruity Loops in his search for holy beats and tribal soundscape.

About the B-Side Players:
The B-Side Players have been laying down their own inimitable latin global funk since they came together in 1994. Their incendiary live shows have defined them as California favorites with 10 San Diego Music Awards. Meanwhile their albums showcase a band with restless musical intelligence, effortlessly blending genres to fashion their own forward looking, latin flavored soul music. As a nine piece band, the players are known for igniting crowds with their fierce rhythms and uplifting message of unity and consciousness. Meanwhile always keeping their focus on the political climate of the world and nation. The B-Side Players are a living and breathing cultural art experience for the mind body and
