Chulita Chalchiuhtlicue - Cumbia Chulita

Cumbia Chulita is to honor all the chulitas, cabronas, chingonas out there working hard on the daily just to survive. You deserve to dance. You deserve to enjoy life. Cumbia is a gift from our ancestors. The sounds that draw us gente to late night dance floors and backyard kickbacks are the result of resilience. It’s the collaboration and community among Africans and indigenas of this continent that merged instruments, dances, and prayers to create this medicine of music we still hear today. Even in all its variations across the Americas, all you have to do is find el ritmo, and you will understand. That connection is something no one can take that away from us. Disfruta!
