Bloomington, Indiana, USA – Austin’s emerging cumbia-tronic
project , Charanga Cakewalk, is touring the United  States. The man behind
Charanga Cakewalk,  Michael Ramos, has fully embraced the diversity of his
life experience. Ramos’ background in rock, Latin, and electronic music all come
into play on Charanga Cakewalk’s debut solo outing, Lotería de la Cumbia
(Triloka Records). >While most of his musical career has been dedicated to providing keyboard and
accordion expertise to the likes of John Mellencamp, Patty Griffin, Paul Simon,
