Combo Chimbita with La Colombopercutiva at Tropicalia
Combo Chimbita: Rooted in Colombia and based in New York, Combo Chimbita lives in the future. After playing together for years, these first-generation New Yorkerspowerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronautabegan experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late night residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn. Exploring the connections between visual identity and improvisational long-form trips, Combo Chimbita came together as a four-piece band after they started encouraging more vocals by Carolina Oliveros, who tightens the rhythm with her guacharaca. Her voice is so powerful that it leads us in that direction, says Prince of Queens. Their thunderous first EP, El Corredor del Jaguar, was released in October 2016 on Names You Can Trust and recorded in Combo Chimbitas DIY studio, El Bunker.


Inspired by Sun Ras Afrofuturism, Combo Chimbita champions Tropical Futurism, the idea that the future doesnt necessarily have to be this super white Western high-tech Star Wars stuff; that the indigenous ideas and culture of people of color, people of Latin America, can also represent a magical and substantial future. Its a vision that maybe a lot of people dont necessarily think about often. The old and deep knowledge that indigenous people have of the land has been neglected for many years as part of capitalism and colonization.


La Colombopercutiva is a DC-based group that plays lively dance music rooted in the traditional music of Colombia as well as incorporating non-traditional musical influences.
