This wednesday evening @ Beursschouwburg: Storytelling, psychedelic punk and cumbia-not-cumbia. The future is tropical. Live concert by Colombian band Combo Chimbita.
The mysterious Combo Chimbita combines psychedelica, folk and a strong shot of punk to create what they call ‘tropical futurism’. The four first-generation New Yorkers from Colombia take inspiration from the musical traditions of South America, the Carribean and Africa, invoking the spiritual wisdom of our global ancestors through a melding of past and future. Their performances range from the hypnotically ritualistic to the darkly danceable, with the contralto voice of high priestess/frontwoman Caolina Oliveros supported by the groovy basslines, sharp synths, smouldering guitars and ecstatic drumming of her bandmates. https://combochimbita.bandcamp.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXEEYLT1NIc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM093T8EMGQ
20:30 – 21:30: Muluni (Live Concert – Wild Twee Folk voice & Guitar) 🎃 Muluni is a genuine fruit swollen by the land. It doesn’t matter if it has grown under contaminated illegal waste dump land or if we are talking about the Prip’jat country side. After a short pause, involved in different musical projects, Muluni has decided to take control of his music writing and in April 2019 released his first soloist composition “Mi vida es un pollo fritto” produced by Golden Catrame: – https://goldencatrame1.bandcamp.com/album/mi-vida-es-un-pollo-fritto – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDcO1Ew7_88
