✪ Combo Chimbita Combo Chimbita is a new offshoot of the fast-rising M.A.K.U Soundsystem from the minds of musicians Camilo Rodriguez, Prince Of Queens and Dilemastronauta. M.A.K.U and El Combo Chimbita are comprised of young first-generation New Yorkers from Colombia, and the sound of this stripped down trio is a fiery blend of untamed garage abandon mixed with the diverse African & Caribbean influences that have permeated through the Colombian coastal sound systems.

✦ DJ BEMBONA Born & Bred Brooklynite, Xiomara Marie aka DJ Bembona is the new chica in town. As an Afro-Latina (Puertorriqueña y Panameña), she aims to teach her diverse audience more about Latino culture, and aims to bring her Latino community one step closer to embracing their blackness.
