Bomba Estereo

Bomba Estereo is a Colombian group based in Bogota that weds tropical, cumbia, vallenato, and champeta rhythms to electro, reggae, and pop in a unique form of dance music.

The group was formed by Bogotá native Simón Mejía out of his A.M. 770 project, a recording outfit that utilized salsa, cumbia, electro beats, and dance music. He renamed the group Bomba Estereo in 2005. The group's debut album, Vol. 1, appeared in 2006 as a solo record, with contributions from several musicians and singers including singer/rapper Liliana "Li" Saumet. This pair remain the band's central members and based on the album's strength, Mejía was able to secure a distribution deal with Nacional Records.

Enlisting others players, Bomba Estereo's sophomore album, Estalla, was issued in 2008, and was subsequently released in the United States as Blow Up, based on the global dancefloor and Latin radio success of its single "Fuego." In 2010, they were voted "Best New Band in the World" by MTV Iggy. Later that year, Mejía competed in the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, to win a year collaborating with Brian Eno -- he finished second to producer Ben Frost. He also worked with filmmaker Santiago Posada on a field recording project in San Basilio de Palenque.

Bomba Estereo toured globally, and played music festivals including SXSW, Bumbershoot, and Bonnaroo before returning to the studio to work on a new recording. An EP entitled Ponte Bomb was released by Nacional in 2011.

They followed it with the album Elegancia Tropical in 2012 on the Colombian label FM Discos y Cintas. Miles Cleret's Soundway label picked it up and released it internationally. It netted two global dancefloor singles in "El Alma y el Cuerpo" and "Pure Love," and a nomination for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. The band -- which had undergone several personnel changes -- undertook tours of their home country, the United States, and Mexico over the next year and a half.

In 2014, they released the single "Qué Bonito" on FM Discos y Cintas. Late in the year, they signed with Sony Music Latin. Their pre-release single, "Fiesta," appeared in March of 2015, followed by the full-length Amanecer in June. ~ Thom Jurek

This is a fusion street rithm, mixing African Latino sounds with electronic music. It takes the Colombian rithms to a whole new level!
