Kabomba / Bio

Kabomba is a six-piece ska/party/funk band from Austin, Texas. The original

members- Matthew Schuster, Bryce Gorski, and Nicholas Steger met and formed

the group in San Marcos, Texas while attending Texas State University. The name

Kabomba is a twist on the word Cabomba, a unique underwater plant genus found

in the San Marcos River that is known both for its underwater flowers and for its

oxygenating powers.

Kabomba, under their own record label Kabomba! Records, has produced a self-

titled studio album 'Kabomba!’ (2012), a live album 'Kabomba!: Not Dead, Live’

(2012), and their first EP 'Mucho Take It Easy’ (2010). In February 2013, Kabomba

recorded their 13 track sophomore album ‘Spring Loaded,’ in Austin, Texas.

Kabomba is the collision between Western funk and soul traditions mixed with A-

minor Gypsy dances and Latin cumbias. Kabomba’s influences span a broad range

of genres including funk, ska, indie, rock, reggae, and Eastern European. Kabomba

is known for highly energetic shows, driving horn section, funky bass lines, and

party aesthetics.
