La Bomba de Tiempo in Buenos Aires

Last night a few Columbian friends and I went to La Bomba de Tiempo in Abasto. La Bomba de Tiempo is a group of drums formed by some of the most outstanding percusionists of Argentina. All their shows are improvised and they communicate through a language of signs, which is remarkable to watch. They’ve been performing concerts every Monday night in centro cultural Konex since early 2006. They play all year round and every week they have a different musical guest. Last night was this cool guitar playing Nora Jones type. The whole concept and signs were invented by Santiago Vázquez, the director, who wanted each presentation of the group to be unique. It’s like Saturday Night Live (with a 3rd base coach) for drummers!
