Corazon del Barrio
All Ages

From the organizers:
All Ages Show featuring CUMBIA LEGENDS: Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto and special guest La Diabla and Mitchum Yacoub, hosted by Bad Vibes Good Friends at Corazon del Barrio.

The San Diego debut of Latin Grammy award winning Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto. Los Gaiteros de San Jancinto are a traditional folkloric cumbia group formed in the Caribbean Region of Colombia. They've been active since 1940. This is the source of cumbia, the very music that preserves the traditional rhythms and sounds of Colombia's Indigenous, Spanish and Afro-Colombian heritage. This is a rare an absoulute must see.

La Diabla combines traditional cumbia music with the gritty spirit of Tijuana, and they bring their bi-national dance party wherever they go.

Mitchum Yacoub is an Egyptian-American multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ based out of San Diego, CA. As a lifelong drummer that has supported many projects in the vein of afrobeat, soul, funk, and reggae, he's been slow brewing a unique feel for roots and dance music. Since beginning his first live performances in late 2019, Yacoub has played alongside roots music heavies like The Original Wailers, Antibalas, and Jungle Fire. In 2022, his group supported Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 for six shows across the U.S., while he traded on percussion and drum kit for Kuti's band: Egypt 80 (formerly of Fela Kuti).
