ABOUT THE SONG

“Dombe” [an onomatopoeic sound, the beat of the Candombe drums] is an ethnic-pop song influenced by Candombe, R&B, and Latin jazz. Candombe is a traditional form of Uruguayan music influenced by Bantu African music. In the song, Julieta describes how everytime she is with her lover, a candombe party breaks out in the neighbourhood and they are both drawn by the rhythm.
