Cumbia Que Te Vas De Ronda crosses continents in search of answers: what is cumbia and how does it create such joy? In this vivid experimental documentary filmed between Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Portugal, the Philippines and Vietnam, we hear about memory and identity, rites and the sun, Afro-stanzas and drumbeats. Cumbia is wild – it doesn’t need expert dancers. Bodies fill with energy when those rhythms sneak in. Across oceans and in distant lands, the feeling is always the same.
