The Beachland Ballroom Presents:
Combo Chimbita with Uniity and Apostle Jones
Described by NPR’s Alt.Latino as an “otherworldly presence,” Combo Chimbita is the creative unity of Carolina Oliveros (vocals, guacharaca), Niño Lento es Fuego (guitar), Prince of Queens (bass, synthesizers) and Dilemastronauta (drums), who together transcend common concepts of time and nationality.
Afro-Caribbean transcendance, bewildering chants, booming drums and psychedelic distortion lay the rhythmic foundation for IRÉ; a testament to the ever expanding scope of Combo Chimbita’s sonic palette and their modes of resistance in realms both spiritual and terrestrial.
“Within the saga of Combo Chimbita,” reflects Niño Lento es Fuego about each of the band’s releases, “El Corredor del Jaguar (2016) finds this eternal being lost outside their realm and returning to Abya Yala (2017) in order to heal and restore peace to the continent. Ahomale (2019) appears as a guiding energy of resistance and now IRÉ (2022) represents those chosen to lead the revolution and materialize the good fortunes foretold in their divinations.” Like the jaguar before them, Combo Chimbita carries on; delicate, resilient and roaring.
Apostle Jones, since bursting onto the music scene of Cleveland, OH in 2018, has played almost 1,000 shows and premier music festivals including House of Blues, Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame, Burning River Fest, BriteWinter Fest and Twinsburg Blues Festival. Major Cleveland venues include the Music Box Supper Club, Beachland Ballroom, Brother's Lounge, Grog Shop and the emerging underground clubs like Crobar and Coda.
With early roots in Chicago’s theater scene a flair for entertainment with live music has become a signature style of Apostle Jones. Even though 2020 delivered a blow to bands, venues, and live music in general, Apostle Jones has nevertheless been on an impressive upward trajectory. The release of their first EP – “Lilith” has staked out their space in Cleveland’s musical landscape. The fluid ensemble featuring Michael Haburary, Rashon Blake, Alex Zinni, Eric Levine, Charlie Wilson, Charde Young and Honey Monai are led by the dramatic, stirring vocals and presence of singer/keyboardist Mikey Silas. The group delves into the soulful music singing about life’s experiences and good times to come.
The band has recently released “4-Pins Left” with the most recent, brass version of the band and are available on all major streaming platforms. www.ApostleJones.com
