Combo Chimbita is a visionary quartet that draws from ancestral mythologies and musical enlightenment. Comprised of Carolina Oliveros’ mesmeric contralto, illuminating storytelling and fierce guacharaca rhythms, Prince of Queens’ hypnotic synth stabs and grooving bass lines, Niño Lento’s imaginative guitar licks, and Dilemastronauta’s powerful drumming, the lure and lore of Combo Chimbita is intense and undeniable.
The band’s most recent album and Anti- debut, Ahomale, topped the NACC Latin chart and was accompanied by a massive tour that exposed audiences to Combo Chimbita’s transformative live performances. They’ve released four singles so far in 2021, and they are included here for radio airplay!
“There’s something magical here. This NYC by way of Colombia band is quite a charismatic, engaging trip.” -Refinery29
“Lead vocalist Carolina Oliveros is an otherworldly presence over Afro Colombian rhythms meted out by guitar, bass and genre crossing drumming.” –NPR alt.Latino
