Six girl punk rockers got together one day and decided to start a side project, just for fun. But Ali Gua Gua, the group’s former lead vocalist, refused to start another rock band. She believed rock had gotten too fancy, too conservative and too macho. So they decided to form a cumbia cover band and call themselves the Kumbia Queers. Latino USA interviewed Juana Chang and Ali Gua Gua.

Update: Since we first aired this piece, Ali Gua Gua has left the band and is continuing her career as a DJ in Mexico.
