El Combo Oscuro

El Combo Oscuro is a psychedelic Cumbia outfit hailing from the sweat-drenched discotecas of Austin, Texas.

Their sound combines the psychedelic trills of the vintage organ paired with gnarled guitar stylings played over the driving pulses of a thumping rhythm section to create an impenetrable wall of psychedelic Latin sounds.

Since forming in 2020, they have resonated with both listeners and tastemakers alike. Within their first year, they clinched a nomination for Austin Music Awards’ Best Latin Act, and their debut EP, Que Sonido Tan Rico, was listed at #15 in "Austin Chronicle’s Top 100 Records of 2021" by music editor Kevin Curtin. Their sophomore release, Cumbia Capital, was praised by the former Chief Editor of the Austin Chronicle, Raoul Hernandez. In addition, they performed at notable events such as SXSW, UtopiaFest, Levitation Fest, Chicha Summit and Viva Big Bend.

El Combo Oscuro is composed of members of El Tule, Del Toros, Hard Proof and more.
