Mindbending Cumbia: Combo Chimbita in Concert
December 6, 2017•11 min
Psychedelic, trippy and downright freaky, Combo Chimbita use Cumbia as a building block to create what they call tropical futurism. They embrace an inventive combination of rhythms and sounds from Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America. A quartet of first generation New Yorkers whose backgrounds are Colombian & who grew up loving heavy metal, psychedelic funk & soul, the band's debut release is a concept album called Abya Yala. It came out this summer and with this music only episode you get a chance to hear a taste of it live.
