Sunday September 14th, 21st & 28th, 2008 - From 9pm to 12am

Ostia Presents:

 

Quimbombó Quartet

featuring Cuban Vocalist Igor Arias

Quimbombó is dedicated to creatively interpreting the Cuban Son (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 Son popularized by Conjunto Chappotín in the 1950's; a word of Congolese origin, it means "okra" in Spanish. The group's lively and unique sound has excited audiences at many venues including Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing, SOB's, The Empire State Building, The Brooklyn Museum, La Belle Epoque, Gonzalez y Gonzalez, Sweet Rhythm, The Blue Water Grill, and Bistro Latino.

 

Ostia Tapeo Restaurant/Lounge, has created an atmosphere where the tapeo tradition is followed, with friends, family, and loved ones. Come down for a tapa, a copa and some live music and be transported to a modern Spanish establishment with old world sensitivity.

**There will be space for dancing**
