2013 Festival August 2nd - 4th
25th Anniversary Celebration
This diverse group of musician represents the multi-cultural society that Canada is today. Since 1988 the group has “spiced up the lives of South British Colombians with their hot mixture of afro-Caribbean rhythms, so infectious that no foot can stay still when they play their variety of cumbia, socas, merenges, cha cha chas, rumbas and batucas.
This year’s special anniversary celebration for the band Kumbia, is indeed a testament to the many contributions that these individuals make (often on a voluntary basis) to the rich cultural heritage of our city, province and country. This milestone is the opportunity to recognize the positive impact that these artists have had on our community for over one quarter of a century. Come to Centennial Square for 2 days of tribute to Kumbia by the Latin Community and tango and latin dance groups of Victoria. Saturday/Sunday 1:00-6:00, August 3rd and 4th. See artists page for more info.
