Babaloo plays a unique brand of international dance party music. Babaloo originated in Jamaica Plain, MA, a multi-cultural enclave of Boston, where the music of local punk rock bands mix with the sounds of Mambo, Bachata, Reggaeton, and Merengue that emanate from car stereos, front stoops, and bodegas. Their music is rooted in Latin and Afro-Caribbean styles, such as mambo, cha cha cha, samba, reggae, ska, and African soukous combined with the energy, presence and irreverence of the best punk rock. Babaloo creates music that is truly infectious in an atmosphere that resemble a trip through the southern hemisphere with Johnny Rotten or Joey Ramone as your tour guide. They are truly a one of a kind experience.

Chickie Chickie Boom, youve been a bad bad girl, na Chickie Chikie Boom you didnt share your toys, Chickie Chickie Boom youve a bad bad girl. youve been a bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad Wooohhhhh. Chickie Chickie Boom you got a lo oclass and itty bitty titties and a great big ass, but all these good things wont help you if youre so mean to people around you, all these good things wont help you with such a shitty attitude. Tudo bem, tudo mal e uma coisa natural eu ti vi na tv en um programa cultural falando de bacalao en um pais tropical voce estava muito Linda, estava muito sensual. Tudo bem tudo mal e uma coisa radical, cuando voce dansa samba qualquer dia e carnival aie que bonita menina que beleza infernal teu rebolado gata bota fogo no quintal.
