Cumbia artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good cumbia bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top cumbia bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Cumbia groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all cumbia bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest cumbia bands of all time, since the most famous cumbia artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best cumbia music.

You can click on the cumbia band names to see more information about that particular notable cumbia group. If they're near the top of the best cumbia artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top cumbia bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the cumbia band names themselves.

List ranges from OneRepublic to Juanes and more. Rank the best ones to see them rise to the top. Is Thalía a better choice for the top of the list than Ninel Conde? Vote accordingly.

All important, significant and iconic names in cumbia music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new cumbia bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of cumbia, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into cumbia music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good cumbia bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent cumbia bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best cumbia bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest cumbia musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular cumbia bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

After you've voted for your favorites, share the list on Facebook, Twitter or any other social networks you're a part of. (56 items)
