CELSO PIÑA (MX)
Friday 06.07.12 - 19:30 - Cosmopol
"El Rebelde dal Acordeón", "El Rey de la Cumbia Colombiana". Celso Piña enjoys many honourable nicknames in the Spanish-speaking world.
The Mexican veteran is one of the main architects behind the cumbia genre's renaissance in Latin America. In recent years, the tropical sunshine music has also provided the basis for countless fiestas at Roskilde Festival.
Piña gives the old Colombian genre an electronic touch while incorporating everything from ska to rap in his urban, groundbreaking sound.
Label: La Tuna / import
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
