Join us for Off the 405 with COMBO CHIMBITA. ✌️
Rooted in Colombia and based in New York, Combo Chimbita lives in the future, or what they call tropical futurism. These four first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late-night residencies in Brooklyn. Although their backgrounds are in heavy rock, metal, and psychedelic funk and soul, they add highly danceable elements from cumbia, salsa, reggae, 1970s Cape Verdean funaná, and Haitian kompa, mixing guacharaca with futuristic-yet-retro synth sounds.
