Sonora Dinamita Show

This exciting Colombian group plays cumbia, a Latin American music genre. As one of the first cumbia groups to reach international success, they are credited with helping to popularize the genre around the world. Their successful recordings include the classic "Mi Cucu".

While the group's lineup has changed over the years, it always features a strong female vocalist and several male vocalists to accompany their amazing brass instrumentation. Sonora Dinamita continues to perform worldwide!
