Español A le la le la Palabra que vino a mi Poder y claridad Sin conocer la verdad Yo la vi llegar, el que buscaba encontrar Asi dice el refran Cuando los pasos te llevan, prepara para temblar Y hoy siento que Que vibra todo mi ser Te venía buscando palabra que vino a mi sola Sin conocer la verdad yo la vi llegar sola, sola Pero debes preparar mente, cuerpo y alma Pa’ yo poderte enseñar que los Dioses hablan Curandote de maldad que al hombre gobierna Tus ojos ya están curados de toda enfermedad Prende la luz y veraz lo que oculto está bajo un cielo sin estrellas Eres luna en tempestad Y hoy siento que Que vibra todo mi ser Te venía buscando palabra que vino a mi sola Sin conocer la verdad yo la vi llegar Para mostrarme la verdad, la que yo no quería hallar Yo soy luna en tempestad Sola sola sola English A le la le la A word that came to me Power and clarity Without knowing the truth I saw it arrive, who was searching to find That is how the saying goes When the steps take you, prepare to tremble Today I feel My entire being vibrate Searching for the word that just came to me Without knowing the truth I saw it alone, alone But you must prepare mind, body, and soul For me to teach you that the Gods can speak Curing you of evil that governs mankind Your eyes are cured of all sickness Turn on a light and you will see what’s hiding below a sky without stars You are the moon within a storm Today I feel My entire being vibrate Searching for the words that just came to me Without knowing the truth I saw it arrive To show me the truth I didn’t want to find I am the moon within a storm Alone alone alone

Español La noche llega otra vez y lo oscurece todo (x2) Bala bala apuntándome, Queriendo hacerme polvo (x2) Y es en esa oscuridad Que brillo más que el oro (x2) Bala bala apuntándote, Si no viste ni modo (x4) Y si digo que Que ahora ya lo se Cada error que cometemos Se paga después Y si digo que Que ahora ya lo se Mira, mira tu de eso deberías saber English Night comes again and darkens everything (x2) Bullet, bullet pointing at me Wanting to make me dust (x2) And it’s in that darkness That I shine brighter than gold (x2) Bullet, bullet pointing at you Not surprised you didn’t see (x4) And if I say That now I know Every error we commit We pay for later And if I say That now I know Look, look you should know about that

Español Desde principio a fin, yo siempre di mi verdad (x2) Te dije que yo lo venía buscando (x2) Lo que no me iba a llegar (x2) Lo que no estaba llegando Ahora frente a frente Cuando el sol saliendo esta (x2) Veo el humo como envuelve la ciudad (x2) Y todo es oscuridad (x4) Y si lo estás escuchando porque te haces a un lado? El silencio está matando con lo que se había ganado (x3) Y si lo estás escuchando porque te haces a un lado? El silencio está matando con lo que se había ganado (x3) English From start to end, I gave my truth I told I wasn’t searching For what was not going to arrive For what was not arriving Now face to face When the sun is rising The smoke surrounds de city And everything is darkness And if you’re listening, why are you moving to the side? The silence is killing what we had won And if you’re listening, why are you moving to the side? The silence is killing what we had won

about

Through folkloric mystique, otherworldly psychedelia and a dash of enigmatic punk, the new album Ahomale (May 3, ANTI-) by Combo Chimbita catapults the sacred knowledge of our forebears into the future. The protagonist of this album whose name is Ahomale possesses the ability to communicate ancestral wisdom through the music,” explained guitarist Niño Lento.

Combo Chimbita’s second studio album and Anti- Records debut sees the visionary quartet drawing from ancestral mythologies and musical enlightenment to unearth the awareness of Ahomale, the album’s cosmic muse. Comprised of lead singer Carolina Oliveros’ mesmeric contralto, illuminating storytelling and fierce guacharaca rhythms, Prince of Queens’ hypnotic synth stabs and grooving bass lines, Niño Lento’s imaginative guitar licks, and Dilemastronauta’s powerful drumming, the lure and lore of Combo Chimbita comes into existence.

“Revelation! The truth and light that is always within us and hides behind our fears… that is Ahomale to me,” Oliveros says. “In this album we were able to connect with our being to add a chapter to our saga. We’re excited to be able to work with people who are connected to our vision and to expand Latin American art!” With the help of producer Daniel Schlett (The War on Drugs, Modest Mouse), the group’s rootsy experimental alchemy and metal strangeness take centerfold. Oliveros howls, yowls and chirps with gut-wrenching emotion. Whether rock - raw and soulful - or bewitching like a shaman in a spiritual ceremony, her voice is always a multifaceted wonder. “Brillo Más Que El Oro (La Bala Apuntándome)” boasts alluring vintage synths that seem to time travel through the lush tropics of yore; then, the mood intensifies when its bridge brilliantly crosses into a spellbinding chant sung in unison: “Y si digo que / Que ahora ya lo se” (“And if I say that I now know”).

Abya Yala nombrado el territorio
Fueron sus hijos sobrevivientes los que entregaron la palabra
Sabios regalos del amor compartiendo sus formas.
Solo despertaron los que soñaron para recibir guerreros.
Las potencias marcaron la piel y formaron los frentes.
Solo esperando en silencio a una mujer profeta
La que carga el peso de un mensaje ardiendo
