Do you like cumbia music? Are you a fan of the all-women of color DJ collective Chulita Vinyl Club? If you answered yes to both or even one of these questions, then you will want to make plans to spend a Friday night dancing to cumbia and other Latinx rhythms from Chulita Vinyl Club and La Gran Puchica, a band that blends Afro-Indigenous sounds with original music and lyrics. The Legionnaire Saloon already prides itself in making sure its bookings reflect the diverse and vibrant community that calls Oakland home. If we want to see more events showcasing international sounds, then we have to come out and support it. So, even if you don’t know how to dance, or might not be familiar with these sounds, La Gran Puchica and Chulita Vinyl Club are going to make a cumbia believer out of you.
