Event description

Description

Listen and learn during an engaging conversation between Colombian-born, Brooklyn-based band Combo Chimbita and writer and activist Amanda Alcantara (Remezcla, La Galeria). Between performances of songs from their newest “tropical futurist” psychedelic cumbia album, Abya Yala, the band will discuss living and creating their distinctly Afro-Latinx music in Brooklyn’s ever-evolving landscape.

In a small New York living room with no headphones, 4 first-generation New Yorkers from Colombia created their debut album of sounds rooted in distinctly Afro-Latinx rhythms, titled Abya Yala. Combo Chimbita is the band behind the fiercely entrancing “tropical futurist” work, where you can hear – and feel – influences from Sun Ra to punk rock, evoking a beautifully entangled psychedelic cumbia that feels right at home in Brooklyn’s music scene. Join them in conversation, led by writer and activist Amanda Alcantara (Remezcla, La Galeria), to discuss their music, living and creating in Brooklyn, and how we hear and interpret what’s around and within us.

BRIC’s Stoop Series welcomes you in for dynamic conversations that connect art, performance, media and other creative fields with big ideas that are important to Brooklynites. The Stoop Series highlights voices we don’t hear enough, creative solutions that deserve more attention, artistic endeavors that make you see the world differently and tools for enhancing your own creativity. Join us on the Stoop -- there’s something different every week!
