Drinking With Clowns
A Clown ~ “A person who does not take her or himself too seriously”
Drinking With Clowns is an unique blend of Latin sound and funky rhythms that will send you grooving into the ecstasy of dance!
From the thumping sounds of afro-american drums in the streets of South America to the smooth, funky and soulful beats of the North American urban landscape, Drinking With Clowns takes you on a musical journey every time they step into the stage. Mixing sexy funky latin rhythms such as cumbia, samba, salsa with reggae, rock, and other musical genres, DWC infuse their audiences with electrifying energy with every performance!
The project is led by Baldo Bobadilla (singer/songwriter/producer from Paraguay) and Kristias Trujillo (Drummer/Composer from Mexico), who over the years have been joined by many talented musicians from the South America and the United States and have made amazing contributions to the project. Joining them is Alejandro Jimenez (Colombia – Percussion) adding his ‘sabor’ to the mix.
The music of DWC is diverse, fun and conscious! Drinking With Clowns is passionate about making a positive impact in their community and the world; lead singer Baldo Bobadilla is the Executive Director of Future Kind, an organization dedicated to bringing educational opportunities to those least fortunate among us. Drinking With Clowns is an active donor and contributor to Future Kind and the great projects they develop around the world.
The message and philosophy of DWC is one of spreading fun and love in the world. Not taking yourself too seriously can lead to humbleness, to awareness and eventually to action, to help others and the world.
