Meet Tambora’s Cindy Youngren, WGLT 2022 Summer Concert Opener


The WGLT Summer Concert presented by CEFCU is set to return to downtown Bloomington on Saturday, June 18. And for the first time in its 20-year history, it’s all-female programming.

Central Illinois legend Cindy Youngren, who is the vocalist for WGLT’s summer concert opening band, Tambora, brings the warmth of her hometown.

The “Cindy” of Southside Cindy and the Slip-Tones and member of Hoosier Daddy, Youngren spoke with WGLT’s Ariele Jones about what audiences should expect from her Peoria-based flamenco band.

“We are a performance full of energy and talent,” says Youngren. The group is filled with talented musicians from all over central Illinois with a sound heavily influenced by Latin and Mediterranean sounds.

Youngren said she was thrilled when she was approached to perform at WGLT’s summer concert.

“It’s our first public venue that’s not invite-only, so it’s the coming-out party if you will, and I’m sure it won’t look like that,” she said. .

WGLT’s summer concert is a perfect environment for the “most talented street party” an audience member can see.
