Cumbiamuffin’s wall of sound is unstoppable on the dance floor and with the collective energy of authentic Colombian singers, this orchestra is conquering the local music scene.

Put together by Colombian and Australian musicians, this project has the common vision of introducing the purest sounds of traditional Cumbia to the Australian audiences,blended with contemporary caribbean rhythms like Ragga and Reggae, playing the classics that made this genre the most popular rhythm in Latin America during the 80’s, and that now is taking over the world.

Cumbiamuffin was put together by Mike Raper and Colombian Born Guitarist Carlos Arango who graduated from the Australian Institute of Music with a Bachelor of Music majoring in Audio Technology and currently works as a Sound Engineer for the Sydney Opera House. Carlo’s original Idea was to join forces with musicians from both countries to introduce in Australia one of the most addictive and fast growing rhythms from Latin America. Since its first concert Cumbiamuffin has gained lots of interest in the local scene due to its originality and big brass orchestra feel. The Colombian contingency consists of: Angela Rosero, (born in Bogota -Colombia) is a passionate performer who arrived in Australia four years ago.

Angela also manages a performance space in Rozelle (La Sala) with regular theatre performances, music and dance lessons. On 2009 Angela received the Viva Fiesta award, due to her contribution to the Festival  as a  new emerging talent.  With her powerful presence on stage she will take you to live  the authentic Latin American party with the rhythm of Cumbia. MC Altafari, (born in Cali -Colombia) Specializes in Afro-Caribbean rhythms, Reggae and dancehall, He has collaborated with bands like Third World, Luciano Lee’s Scratch, Perry, O- Yaba, Arrested Development, Bo Jah, Jay Ja, Roberts, Ras Rony, Jah Baya Jah Baya Sound of Revolution, Basslines Crew, Bump Crew DJ Johna, 4:20 productions, Rebel Soul Sistem and more local acts Francisco Castillo, (born in Bogota – Colombia) is a passionate Percussionist who graduated from the Faculty of Arts with a Diploma in Music with an emphasis on folkloric music.
