Here comes Andrés Digitals original Cumbia Round Up No.120. This is the first round for 2021 and we celebrating 10 years on air! Also 2021 will be the year when culture, music, dance and performing arts will be reborn (I hope so)…or maybe we will get Zombies or the Aliens will come. Vamos a ver. In this 10 years we have seen a lot of things come and go…we have seen the end of myspace and the rise of Soundcloud, we seen the Streamingportals grow. We’ve seen a lot of Artist come and go and we heard really great Cumbias for all that time. So after 10 years the Cumbia Round Up is converting into the encyclopedia de la Nueva Cumbia and the Community is growing. We had a lot of fun on the way and made great friends around the planet. A big shout out to all the people invited me to their stages, Soundsystems and sofas. We shared big times! Gracias a la Cumbia!
