El Combo Barbaro had their first rehearsal last night. Thursday at 9pm their perform, or COMPETE rather, in the annual Petronio Alvarez colombian music competition. There's a category for more tradition folkloric styles, a few other regional sections, and then the "other" category, which Quantic & His Combo Barbaro are entering, along with some local favorites like ChocQuibTown.
I'll write back again, but tomorrow the festival starts, so after soundcheck and a few empty bottles of viche (a Colombian favorite not unlike Aguardiente), anything can happen. I miss my woman so I can keep eyeballs in my head, but for the record it's true what they say; "Las caleñas Son Como Las Flores" (¡!)
