“Combo Chimbita’s latest record Ahomale isn’t just an album,” writes KEXP’s DJ Chilly, who has been a huge supporter of the group’s new album. The site continues, “It’s a powerful feminine warrior who channels her heart and the spirits of our ancestors, fighting for enlightenment and pushing the world forward into a simultaneously ancient and progressively visionary future. It’s the heart and soul of four first-generation New Yorkers who came together over their love of not only traditional music from their birth country Colombia, but of psychedelic sounds, metal, soul and more.”
It’s no wonder, then, that DJ Chilly invited the group to perform in studio at KEXP and sit for an interview. The band has always been thrilling live, but KEXP caught them at the peak of their powers in the midst of their Ahomale tour. See the set, and enjoy the interview, here.
