Event Details

Returning to Melbourne for their second time, 15 piece Orchestra Cumbiamuffin brings the energetic, joy-filled rhythms of Latin American Cumbia, performed by Australia’s most established and favourite orchestra of Colombian and Australian musicians. They come from sold-out performances at Sydney Festival last 3 years in a row and one memorable night at The Night Cat back in 2019. 

Cumbiamuffin’s hotshot horn section, percussionists and Colombian singers Angela Rosero and Alfonso Mosquera generate an infectious wall of sound, melding Caribbean elements of Ragga and roots with the big band, dance floor swing of pure Latino Cumbia.


Cumbiamuffin was created by trombonist Mike Raper – the musical lead of the band – and Colombian-born guitarist Carlos Arango to bring together top musicians from Australia and Colombia and introduce Australian audiences to the addictive, high energy, big brass band live sound of Cumbia.


The group has kickstarted dance floors at festivals across Australia, including, Tropfest, Manly Jazz Festival, Darling Harbour Fiesta and iconic Sydney Festival.


As part of our COVIDSafe plan, The Night Cat requires all ticket holders and patrons of the venue to check in using the Service Victoria App when entering the venue.
