La Sabrosa Sabrosura

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

La Sabrosa Sabrosura plays what it calls "Cumbiabomba". Just what is Cumbiabomba? We hear it may involve a significant dose of cumbia, plus a bit of funk, a dash of Jamaican sounds, and maybe a sprinkling of electronics. If not for snow we would have found out two weeks ago. Happily we have another chance: We've rebooked this high-energy Mexico City outfit for tonight (Saturday). After the radio show, you can continue your course in Cumbiabomba when La Sabrosa Sabrosura plays on a massive multi-artist Barbes Records / Electric Cowbell showcase at Drom in the East Village on Saturday Jan 11th.

Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traoré was on PBS Newshour last night - & I was knocked out by her singing solo w/ her guitar :

Hi everyone, just got word from Ken that we are having some problems at our 91.1 FM transmitter, and we are off the air. All streams, 90.1 FM, and 91.9 FM are all working fine. We hope to fix the problem soon! Sorry!
Avatar    Sat. 12/28/13 6:52pm Rob W:

I have to check out any band with bacalao in its name! And great that Rokia Traore was on the PBS Newshour, I didn't know that. I like her new cd by the way...

Ken, yeah, can't power a transmitter with a lump of coal I guess...

I’m glad she apologized, but still what she just said was pretty obnoxious.

Looks like 91.1 is on the backup transmitter, so the techies must be at work on the main one.
