ARTIST: El Combo Chimbita
GIG: Monday night at Barbes
You know the saying, “if you can’t beat em, join em”? That’s sort of how we’re feeling about the weather at this point. Since everything’s already a steam bath, this August let’s just find some of the sweaty-est stuff we can and bask in the tropical rhythms. Here’s a great way to start: El Combo Chimbita, a hard-grooving group of Colombian musicians who know a thing or two about sweat. They’re part of the ongoing Tropical Vortex Mondays series at Barbes.
