El Tambó Fest

March 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $10

El Tambó is a dance party with roots that run deep into the Sonoran Desert soil and extend across borders. El Tambó, loosely, “The Drum,” celebrates the cultural remixing that has always taken place here in the borderlands–– where O’odham cumbia meets Carribean fuego, where consciousness and context are all at home on the dance floor. Expertly curated by a new generation of young bilingual Tucsonan DJ’s and producers lead by fronterizo poet Logan “Dirtyverbs” Phillips, El Tambó welcomes touring bands, DJ’s and artists from across the country and the continent.

El Tambó has partnered with the historic Hotel Congress in Downtown Tucson to bring this party to life and provide a space for members of the community to explore cultural diversity without stigma or apprehension. The goal for these cultural commemoration spaces is to invite community members to take part in cultural awareness and political conscience by spreading a message of acceptance and unity. The team at El Tambó strongly believes artists and musicians can help steer political climate by challenging cultural barriers and using music as a tool to bring communities together.
