Combo Chimbita‘s new album Ahomale is out now on ANTI- Records and they brought it to The Echo with all kinds of fire. Lead singer Carolina Oliveros captivated the audience with her raw strength. The intensity of her performance along with the entire musicianship provides a unique and elevated experience to their latest mystical sounds.
These Colombians via New York have an enchanting way to get you in trance with every beat. Although predominantly electronic, the sounds of their roots come out with the percussive beats, the guacharaca and guiro.
The night was loaded with punk psychedelic sounds not only by Combo Chimbita but also by perfect match, Los Angeles’ own, El Sancha. This femme rising star was a treat to your soul. The 80’s vibe, love/pain lyrics, and fearless stance persuades you to feel the songs as if they were your own.
