One of the great names in Latin Music, the Original Sonora Dinamita of Lucho Argain and Xiu Garcia bring their incredible back catalogue of hits including Mi Cucu, Que nadie sepa mi sufrir and Escandalo to Electric Brixton for a rare London show.
Formed in Cartagena, Colombia in 1960 by musical director Lucho Argain, since 1979 La Origina Sonora Dinamita has been based in Mexico and was one of the first cumbia groups to gain international success. They are credited with helping to popularise the genre throughout Latin America and the world. Whilst the group’s lineup has changed over the years, it has always featured a strong female vocalist to accompany its ten-piece big band line up. Tonight the band includes special guest Mexican vocalists Flor Amargo and Karla Lazo.
The night celebrates Mexican Independence Day with a line-up packed with live mariachi from El Mexicano, tacos from Mestizo Restaurant and DJs, more live music from Los Trovadores de la Cumbia and performances from Yeilistli – Compañía de Danza Folklórica, direct from Mexico and London’s own Mestizo Folklore Group – and of course El Grito, the battlecry of Mexican Independence.
