Reggae vs. Cumbia 

When: Wed., Dec. 11, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: free
A growing number of local venues and parties are celebrating international popular music. Case in point: Every Wednesday, DJs El Kool Kyle and Silverback spin reggae (from Jamaica, Brixton, and New York City) and cumbia (a form of dance music that’s popular throughout Latin America) on two floors of The Legionnaire Saloon (2272 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). The origins of cumbia live up to the “world” music moniker: It was birthed from Guinean cumbé music and influenced by both indigenous South American groups and Spanish colonizers. El Kool Kyle and Silverback host guests DJs each week, and a local muralist, Marlon Sagana Ingram, curates live art. Baylando Records, which hosts the event, formally launched this week, so expect the party to grow.
