Pantropical concert: Combo Chimbita @WORM Rotterdam

The New York-based Colombian band Combo Chimbita is coming to WORM Rotterdam! Afro-Latin rhythms are formed into melodic witchcraft, stripping away wordly façades into something bare and beautiful, like time travel through the lush tropics of yore. This is the stuff of goosebumps that you can also dance to.

✹ COMBO CHIMBITA (us/co | Names You Can Trust, Anti Records)
Visionary quartet Combo Chimbita combine folkloric mystique, otherworldly psychedelia and a dash of punk attitude. Their latest release 'Ahomale' captures all that is essential about them: Carolina Oliveros’ mesmeric singing illuminaties her storytelling and fierce guacharaca rhythms. Through powerhouse drumming, hypnotic synths and expressive guitar and bass playing, the band fuse the perennial rhythms of the Afro-Latin diaspora with a modern-day consciousness, while tracing the prophetic traditions of their ancestry. Oliveros: “Ahomale resurges from the visions that we’ve been having via our music and life, and the lyrics reflect a manifestation passed on through our ancestors and the gods”.
