The summer season kicks off Saturday, March 29th, at the legendary Double Door (on 2 floors!) where we’ll be connecting the dots between vintage & electronic rhythms of Latin@america and celebrating C-C-C-Cuuuumbia alongside other worldly & bass-heavy music of the peoples.

// ABOUT LIDO PIMIENTA:
Known as “Colombian darling” and “Soundsister”, Lido Pimienta jumps back and forth from electronic beats, analog synths and Afro-Colombian rhythms to out-of-this-world chanting.
“Picture Bjork if she grew up in Baranquilla,” says Sergio Elmir of Dos Mundos.
The sophomore album “La Papessa” – which marks her departure from longtime music partner Michael Ramey (Golden Death Music) – is aimed to be released in mid 2014 and is in the works alongside Toronto multi-instrumentalist and producer Kvesche Bijons-Ebacher (Harmonious Tribe, Spawn) and experimental Trombonist Steve Ward (Caribou, Friendly Rich, Minotaurs, Pick a Piper). Featured on the album are Andrea Echeverri and Conector (Aterciopelados) from Colombia, FAKUTA from Chile and Las Acevedo from Republica Dominicana to name a few.
// ABOUT IBOMBA DJS (BETO & USHKA)
iBomba is a Brooklyn-based DJ duo (DJ Beto & DJ Ushka) known for high energy, tag-team djing that uplifts crowds with a genre-blending mix of digital cumbia, future dancehall, trini-soca, kuduro, baile-funk, bhangra bass, 3ball, champeta, and juke.
No throw-backs or middle of the road crowd-pleasers, iBomba pushes for the newest in mash-ups, remixes, and progressive sounds from across the globe, creating a party that is as diverse and hybrid as it’s music.
Dubbed “NYC’s best underground Latin party” by Timeout New York, iBomba has spun collectively and individually at Le Poisson Rouge, S.O.B’s, Tammany Hall, The Shrine & La Respuesta and shared stages with Bomba Estero, Los Amigos Invisibles, Zuzuka Poderosa, Los Rakas, Venus X, DJ/ Rupture, Q-tip and Tony Touch. More recently they’ve enjoyed profile pieces by Remezcla Mix-Fix and Dutty Artz.
