XEMUMBA 09 Un Festival de Musica Latina October 24, 2009

Xemumba 09 un festival de musica latina presented by bembaentertainment will take place on October 24, 2009 at Kenny Dorham's Backyard in Austin, Texas.

"Xemumba \SHEH-moom-bah\ is a celebration of the many styles of music that Latin and South America has given us. This is a festival founded by me, Brandon Badillo, in September of 2007. I created this event to not only bring these different styles of music together for an evening, but to raise money for my Grandpa, Francisco, in his fight against cancer.
With just minimal advertising, Xemumba proved to be a great success with over 300 ecstatic attendees on that very special evening. I had no excuse for not keeping Xemumba around so I decided to make it an annual event and watch it grow.
This year Xemumba will take place on a cool Saturday, October 24th at Kenny Dorham's Backyard from 10am - 12am. Xemumba will bring Latin and South America to people in a time when it is just too expensive to travel. Those attending will experience over 10 performances ranging from Samba to Afro Cuban to Cumbia to Latin hip hop and many more.
Xemumba will continue to give back as it did for Francisco just two years ago. This year and in years to come, xemumba will donate a percentage of the proceeds to non profit organizations. This year's beneficiaries are Lupe Art, National Hispanic Institute and People Fund.

Entertainment begins at 10:00 AM and continues till 12:00 Midnight.

Rock y Roll Radio supports all three beneficiaries but is very familiar with the National Hispanic Institute (NHI). The NHI is an organization, both national and international, that gives high ability high school Latino students the opportunity to develop leadership skills through three programs: Young Leaders Conference (YLC) The Great Debate - focuses on communication as a powerful tool of leadership; Lorenzo de Zavala (LDZ) focuses on the organization and management of power as a foundational tool of leadership; The College World Series (CWS) - focuses on the power of positioning as foundational tool of leadership. Other programs for graduating seniors and college students include Mexico Language Program and John F. Lopez Summer Intereship.

The award winning Austin Chapter of NHI is very active and vigorously recruiting new members. If you're an Austin, Texas and area high ability high school Latino student, please contact the Austin Chapter of NHI for details. For other parts of the country contact the NHI office. There are many notable NHI alumni in Austin and nationally that continue to serve and contribute to our future Latino leaders.

Please support all three beneficiaries by attending Xemumba 09.
