With a sparkling smile and chic, refined poise, Mariana Yegros is merging Latin America's cumbia music with electronica and finding growing international success. La Yegros, the Argentine singer's stage name, has been dubbed the "queen of electrocumbia." She brings a modern, club-music edge to the traditional genre of dance music that traces its roots to Colombia's African community. For her latest album, "Magnetismo," La Yegros worked with the Argentine composer Gaby Kerpel, who has been active both in cumbia and electronic music.
