Biography

Hailing from Palenque, the first free black town in the Americas, the hip-hop group Kombilesa Mi overlays traditional Colombian rhythms and instruments with lyrics in both Spanish and the local language, Palenquero. The result is an electrifying fusion of Palenquero music and urban rap. Proud of their heritage and passionate about music, Kombilesa Mi (Palenquero for My Friends) represents the voice of a new generation of Colombian musicians. The band’s Lincoln Center performance is part of their U.S. debut tour.
