CRUMB and COMBO CHIMBITA at The Pike Room


CRUMB


Crumb is a collaboration between four friends (Lila Ramani – vocals/guitar, Jesse Brotter – bass, Jonathan Gilad – drums, Brian Aronow – synth/keys/reeds/percussion). After playing music together in various projects for years, the group came together to explore some songs Ramani had written in college, a recording project that became their first self-titled EP. On their second EP, Locket, which was written and recorded by the group while split between Boston and New York for a year, Crumb continues to play with intimate, soulful, and psychedelic sounds. Now, for the first time in a year they live in the same city where they continue to write new music, collaborate with other artists, and play more shows.


COMBO CHIMBITA


Rooted in Colombia and based in New York, Combo Chimbita lives in the future. After playing together for years, 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. Exploring the connections between visual identity and improvisational long-form trips, Combo Chimbita came together as a four-piece band after they started encouraging more vocals by Carolina Oliveros, who tightens the rhythm with her guacharaca. “Her voice is so powerful that it leads us in that direction,” says Prince of Queens. Their thunderous first EP, El Corredor del Jaguar, was released in October 2016 on Names You Can Trust and recorded in Combo Chimbita’s DIY studio, El Bunker.
