El Exquisito Dj Set

Contemporary Cumbia

El Exquisito, born Hadrien Santos Da Silva and previously playing the drums in the band Kumbia Boruka, now stands for his own vision of cumbia music behind the turntables, offering a selector that focuses on contemporary cumbia, whether it be sonidera, villera, casera or else cumbiaton. He summons the sonideros’ codes – sound systems in Monterrey, Mexico – to provide an ambitious mix, filled with coloquial references and, at times, powerful cumbia drums, that he plays live.

On the top of his monthly set at the mythical Valseuses (a night bar in the very heart of Lyon), he plays in various places around the city, among them, the Transbordeur and the Sucre music venues.
