Closer to the Sun: Quixosis with Lascivio Bohemia – Bomba Special


Bomba is an Afro-Ecuadorian musical genre from the Chota Valley, in northern Ecuador based on an ancestral sub saharan drum that has the same name. The Bomba, said to be of Bantu origin, is the core of the ensemble and the heart of the rhythm.

The Chota Valley is the heart of AfroAndean Culture in Ecuador, and it is the focus of the first hour.

Bomba Is music of resistance, resilience and mestization, it comes from a road where three cultures have met in a complex power struggle for hundreds of years. Bomba is in a sense a codex that has kept a people together, despite the passage of time, and in the face of slavery. It is, in many ways, like gospel music, in that it is very much a collective expression, where multiple voices are unified as one in honor of something greater and has survived subjugation at the hands of european colonists, and the systemic racism for centuries afterward.

Today’s space is dedicated to the people of the Chota Valley, their culture, their roots, and their future.

The second half of the show, is selected by one of the most prolific producer from Quito, Lascivio Bohemia.
