More on the band: CONSUMATA [KON-SU-MAH-TAH]

Brooklyn, NY based band to make you dance.Cumbia-punk, ska-funk, boss-a-rengue, dubbed out tarantellas. Using CUT-UPS (a technique hearkening
back to the Dadaists and Beat Poets), Consumata hones in on the non-linear aspects of musical construction. Audible insurrection. Collaging sounds by means of serendipity, the result is organic and unpredictable. Maybe you'll step into a frenzied moshpit,maybe you'll hear your grandparents' folk songs ripping through the speakers. Where-ever you find yourself, it will be wild.
