Kombilesa Mí are a nine-member ‘rap folkloric Palenquero’ collective. Their music combines Caribbean rhythms like cumbia, mapalé, champeta, bullerengue, son palenquero, puya, African soukous and hip-hop with lyrics delivered in the Palenquero language.
One thing about rap; you can enjoy the beats even if you don’t understand the language. Afterall, music is a universal language.
If you can, go Palenquero this year. In terms of rap, Colmbian Afro Americans want to step up like US Afro Americans. #BeatsByDrDre
