Karlos Paez on “Cumbia Pacífica Del Mar”
A healthy dose of Cumbia and World Music vibes celebrating the legacy of Baja Californian indigenous culture with a long history full of Spanish explorers, pirates, and Ocean Lovers. Over time, Baja Sur has developed into a unique destination, an intersection of international influences juxtaposed with sleepy Mexican village life. Here international jet setters rub elbows with laid-back fishermen in traditional boats, and the result is a multicultural mix that we like to call Baja Culture. Take a listen and you’ll find a wealth of Ocean Pacific cultural vibes to stimulate the spirit.
