Papago Warrior is an 8-member band from the Tohono O'odham Nation that plays waila, an indigenous social dance music from Arizona-Sonora, Mexico border which blends cumbia, mazurka, schottische, and norteña. Driven by accordion, electric guitar, and saxophone riffs, and a heavy rhythm section, Papago Warrior (P-Dub) infuses native waila (from bailar) with infectious reggae-tinged reinterpretions of cumbia. Since 2005, Papago Warrior has performed at the National Museum of the American Indian, been featured at the Native American Music Awards, and released 7 albums.

Sonido Rumbandela and Sonido La Cumbia are sound system sonidero DJs who mix bass-heavy Mexican cumbia while speaking fans’ dedications to absent loved-ones and family members. These saludos (shout-outs) create an auditory archive of feelings of longing and love for families separated by the border. They are renowned for their skillfulness on the mic and for their powerful, effects-heavy sound systems.

Xandão is a DJ, anthropologist, and dance-floor ethnographer. She recently produced and curated ¡Un Saludo! Mexican Soundsystem Cumbia in LA, a compilation which highlights how Discos Barba Azul, a small music shop and label in downtown LA, became a hub of border-crossing cumbia sonidera and the genre’s most significant distributor in the United States.
