It's Going To Be a Beautiful Night!!

It's already time for the last concert of 2013 season - hard to believe!

This show promises to be great and the setting down by the river will be perfect to enjoy some traditional Cuban music! Join us for Qimbombo!

Quimbombó is a groove oriented band with a musical base in the Cuban són (the contagious dance music championed by Buena Vista Social Club that is the main ingredient in salsa); they always maintain strong elements of improvisation and spontaneity in their sound.

Quimbombó (pronounced keem-bohm-BO) is the title of a classic Cuban són popularized by Conjunto Chappotín in the 1950's; a word of Congolese origin, it means "okra" or "gumbo" in Spanish.

The group's lively and unique sound has excited audiences at many venues including Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing, The River to River Festival, SOB's, the Brooklyn Museum, La Belle Époque, and Gonzalez y Gonzalez. They have recorded two CDs, Quimbombó, released in 2004, and Conga Electrica, released in 2008.
