L.A.'s wildest pan-global international celebration of music and dance returns!

Friday, November 14th, Doors 9:30 - Show at 10 sharp
at El Cid 4212 W Sunset Blvd LA, CA 90029

Warm on the heels of our explosive summer comeback, MALABOMBA! is back at the storied and
magnificent El Cid in Silverlake! Be there on Friday, November 14th for a globe-hopping
journey from the Balkans to Brazil to points completely off the charts. We are thrilled to
host AK and Her Kalashnikovs as they celebrate the release of their new album Cantatio
Redux, with help from Chicago's wild brass band Black Bear Combo, LA's own forro rockers
Zoom B, along with a Persian dance solo from Afsaneh Mah.

AK AND HER KALASHNIKOVS spit sounds ranging from Gypsy love songs to Russian lullabies to
Serbian ballads to Spanish Copla to French pop to what sounds suspiciously like rock ‘n’
roll. Comprised of a cast of talented instrumentalists, the heart and soul is AK herself,
Alissa Kueker. Her voice is, by turns, angelic and devilish, profoundly serious and as
playful as the first days of love. MALABOMBA! is honored to help them pop the cork on
their new album, Cantatio Redux, and share it with the world. OPA!

What’s more, BLACK BEAR COMBO rolls in from Chicago that very afternoon to join the party.
Brace yourselves for "a raucous mutt channeling the common energy between traditional
music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, punk rock, and free jazz." We've been spinning
their Game of Death album at MALABOMBA! for a few years now, so we're super excited to
have them revving up the party live on our stage.

ZOOM-B throws down their own East LA spin on forro, the hip swiveling, pulsing, party
music from the Northeast of Brazil. They shake things up with influences ranging from
Western swing to ska, jazz, cumbia, and funk. It's been a minute since Zoom-B has played
MALABOMBA!, so get ready for some new flavors along with your classic favorites.

The multi-talented AFSANEH MAH will also be on hand to perform a Persian folk dance solo.
Afsaneh will weave together her background in theater, film, and performance art to create
a stunning performance to the loping 6/8 rhythms of a Tehrani violin.

DJ Jason Savvy and DJ Cat Hair will be keeping things lively all night, spinning deep cuts
of Balkan brass, psychedelic cumbia, bellydance breaks, and more of what you know and

MALABOMBA! - L.A.'s wildest pan-global international celebration of music and dance!
