Combo Chimbita (US)
Tropical futurism, with a mesmerizing live show
A mix of Colombia and New York, of latin with psy punk, of music and ideology. Combo Chimbita is unique, creating “tropical futurism, cumbia-not-cumbia” and telling stories using multi-media such as projections, costumes and props during their live shows.
Described by NPR’s Alt. Latino as an “otherworldly presence,” Combo Chimbita is the creative unity of Carolina Oliveros (vocals, guacharaca), Niño Lento es Fuego (guitar), Prince of Queens (bass, synthesizers) and Dilemastronauta (drums), who together transcend common concepts of time and nationality.
