  25. yangomez says:

    Sorry, but this is not cumbia!


    Hey ignorant!!! is COLOMBIAN not columbian.. and that it is more salsa than anything else

  27. bochalema says:

    Sorry, this is how cumbia is danced in ______, but it is not how it's danced in Colombia… Chains on the feet is the key! Remember that cumbia is from the colombian coast, it was first played by African slaves in the Atlantic coast of that country. Cumbia has now spread to other countries and different styles have evolved. However, in Colombia, the original African chained feet style is the only one used.

  28. Daniel Andrés García R says:

  32. Daniel Andrés García R says:

  40. Gary Hauptli says:

    Excellent video. I am trying to learn the differences between Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue…they are all very similar. You make it easier because the camera is focused on your feet/steps for most of the time. Thank you for your help!
