Celso Piña (Born April the 6th 1953 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, México) is a notable Mexican singer, composer and accordionist. In 2002, Piña was nominated for two Latin Grammy Awards: “Best Contemporary Tropical Album” and “Best New Artist From the North” as well as for “Best Alternative Artist” by the MTV Latino Awards. He is also know by the nicknames: “El Rebelde del Acordeón” and “El Cacique de la Campana”.

He’s an accordion player and singer who has risen to be one of the most notable figures in cumbia music. Cumbia has it’s origins in Colombia’s African and indigenous populations, but it has spread to be one of the most universal Latin American genres. Celso Piña is a pioneer in mixing or blending sounds of tropical base, combined with all kind of popular genres from norteño to sonidero, Ska, Reggae, Rap, Hip Hop or R&B, just to mention some. For this reason he’s considered one of the best musicians from Mexico and Latin America.

Celso’s album ‘Barrio Bravo,’ which includes collaborations with other popular Latin musicans of various genres, brought to life the mega hit “Cumbia Sobre El Rio.” Many of his popular crossover songs feature artists like Lila Downs, Control Machete,
El Gran Silencio, Café Tacuva, Ely Guerra, Benny Ibarra, Alex Lora
(El Tri), Aleks Syntek, Julieta Venegas, Inspector, Blanquito Man and Sargento García, amongst many others.

By the year 2011, Celso began to show his music around the world, with the «Cumbia Por El Mundo» tour where he has performed in more than 20 countries like: Germany, Colombia, Spain, United States, Canada, Guatemala, Denmark, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Argentina, Chile, Nicaragua, Perú, Morocco, among others. On October of 2015, Celso Piña took another big step in his career by taking his music to Asia where he toured in the 5 most important cities of China.

On March 25th, 2016, Celso Piña released his latest álbum named “Aquí presente compa”. Celso Piña will continue consolidating his career as one of the most important Mexican artists around the world.

​La Mera Candelaria is a female-fronted cumbia/son project in Los Angeles, CA. Their unique style of «kitchen cumbia» is light-hearted, humble, and unique in its back-to-the-basics feel. The sound quality and style are reminiscent of those cumbia and son classics you grew up dancing to in the kitchen with your abuela while she cooked on Sunday morning; the type of music that plays in backyard, barefoot family gatherings; or the distant sounds that drift into the dining room from the kitchen of your favorite barrio restaurant. La Mera Candelaria's music and style itself is a vivacious mixture of Colombian-inspired cumbia with a son cubano twist; sassy, humerous, gender-role-defying lyrics; and a humble, countryside sabór!

The group was formed in the summer of 2016 by Bay Area musical transplant, Stephani Candelaria, who previously fronted Oakland's La Misa Negra and Candelaria, and has collaborated with Buyepongo, Viento Callejero, La Junta Collective, and other LA favorites.The four-piece features Stephani Candelaria on vocals and hand percussion, Giovanni Verduzco on cuatro, Moises Baqueiro on bass, and Abel Canel on congas. All four members are based in Los Angeles, and have played, or currently play in, groups including La Misa Negra, Tropicorrillo, Aparato!, and Mariachi Manchester.​
