Come and dance to the beat, drums and rhymes of Kombilesa Mí as they make their stop in New York for their US tour.
Kombilesa Mí is born from the rich musical and historical heritage of San Basilio de Palenque, the first free black town in the Americas, fuses the traditional sounds of the community with urban music. They use traditional drums, their own creations of metal handmade drums, the marímbula and rhyme and rap in Spanish and the traditional Palenquera language, a fusion with African Bantu, Portuguese, French, and English. The new genre is called RFP, which stands for Rap Folklorico Palenquero and includes cumbia, son de negro, mápale and son palenquero.
