Cumbiatón is an intergenerational cultural movement that utilizes music and art as a vessel to heal and uplift oppressed communities. Founded by Dj Sizzle Fantastic and Normz la Oaxaqueña, Cumbiatón has rooted itself in the barrio of Boyle Heights and has branched out across the nation. In the words of the artist collective, “We center our collective experiences to create events by us, for us. We do this because la Cumbia es Cultura.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available online at www.scfta.org.

Julianne and George Argyros Plaza at Segerstrom Center for the Arts is located at 600Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa.
