For those who have been living or studying Spanish in Buenos Aires, you are hopefully no stranger to the rhythmic and upbeat show that is held every Monday at the Konex Center in Palermo. The name of the group is La Bomba de Tiempo and they are one of the best percussionist groups in Argentina.
This group, made of 10 or more musicians, plays music partly by organization and partly by improvisation, making every night different. In 2006, Santiago Vazquez, the original founder of the group, was the only director at each show, guiding the musicians through each music piece using various hand signals. Today, there are a few more musicians who have the learned the hand signals and these directors rotate throughout the night, making each drum session unique. Each music piece uses a series of different beats, begin in low and steady beats and rising until the entire group is in perfect sync and the music becomes a festival of percussions.
This Saturday at the Konex Center (Sarmiento 3131), La Bomba de Tiempo will be celebrating their 3 anniversary as a music group. Beginning at 12am, the group will play a series of sets during the early morning hours, drinks will be served, and dancing is a must! Tickets are $15pesos beforehand, and $20 pesos at the door.
