Event Details

After some Covid cancellations, Cumbiamuffin finally comes back to Melbourne for their second time at The NightCat. 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 NightCat 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.

We acknowledge that this event will be held on Wurundjeri land of the Kulin Nation and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
