ABOUT DJ Dirtyverbs

Since DJing house parties and mezcal speakeasies in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 2007, DJ Dirtyverbs has used cumbia as a lengua franca to sonically travel across Las Américas and beyond. Born and raised in the Arizona-Sonora borderlands and now based in Tucson, Arizona, Dirtyverbs has been a resident DJ at Tucson’s historic Hotel Congress since 2012 and is the lead organizer and host of El Tambó (“Best Danceparty,” Tucson Weekly).

He has played at venues across the United States, Mexico and Colombia, and DJs and hosts at a number of Arizona’s keystone cultural events, including the All Souls Procession and the Rialto Theatre’s New Year's Eve Party, on stage for both events annually since 2013. Dirtyverbs has shared the stage with Buyepongo (LA), A Tribe Called Red (Canada), Riobamba (NYC), Grupo Fantasma (Austin), Deltatron (Lima, Perú), Amadou & Miriam (Mali) and many, many more.
