Drawing on backgrounds in heavy rock, metal, and psychedelic funk and soul, this Colombia-rooted, NYC-based four-piece band gleefully fuses cumbia, ‘70s funaná from Cape Verde, kompa from Haiti, guacharaca, dub, and synth into their own blend of tropical futurism. These first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late-night residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn. Tonight, they kick off the holiday season at Lincoln Center with a free show at the David Rubenstein Atrium as part of the Lincoln Square BID’s Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square celebration.
