CD Release Party!
Join us at DROM this Wednesday July, 30th for Quimbombó's release of their new CD, Conga Eléctrica. - It's sure to be a fun night!
Quimbombó is dedicated to creatively interpreting the Cuban Són (the contagious dance music championed by Buena Vista Social Club that is the main ingredient in Salsa) by maintaining strong elements of improvisation and spontaneity in its 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" in Spanish.
Located in the East Village area of Manhattan, DROM is a multi-event venue with a restaurant and lounge. With high ceilings, earthy colors and comfortable seating, DROM provides a warm, inviting, sophisticated and informal atmosphere to relax and enjoy multi-cultural and varied programming.
