About the band:
What happens when alumni of Austin Latin music scene institutions Grupo Fantasma, El Tule and Del
Toro mix it up with a veteran bass player from the Big Easy? You get the completely original yet
somehow familiar sounds of Austin’s latest Latin musical force, El Combo Oscuro. The lyrics bring
listeners through 1000 years of the history of the Americas. The appeal, however, is universal. This
music is 100% ready for the dancefloor and creates an urge to dance that transcends language and
culture. If this rythym doesn’t get you moving, your nalgas are busted!
The El Combo Oscuro sound truly brings something for everyone. They provide retro 70’s Colombian
dance hall music and a touch of 60’s psychedelia with a modern approach. Any self-respecting Sonidero
could spin it all night and keep folks on the dancefloor. With all of its Latin flair, the music speaks to the
listener with an original authenticity. There’s no doubt- this music sounds like Austin, Texas.
