Combo Chimbita Has New Video, National Tour

We are blessed to have seen a lot of Combo Chimbita over the years—they’re in Brooklyn, we’re in Brooklyn—but the band is sharing the wealth and heading out on a three-month national tour in support of their new album, Ahomale. In anticipation of this huge career double step, the group has released a lyric video for the album’s second single, “Esto Es Real.”

It’s unexpected to see a band from such a lush place—Colombia—pictured in the desert (although their current home base of New York is pretty green too). But their new album, slated for release on May 3 by ANTI- Records, centers on that theme that drives people to arid places: the mystical search.

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,” lead singer Carolina Oliveros explains. “I wanted the album to convey the search for spiritual awareness, which ultimately serves as a revelation.”

And with a tour that spans from sea to shining sea, Combo Chimbita is making a case for itself as a group for all climates. If you have the chance, check ‘em out. It’ll be revelatory. See tour dates below.
