      Bomba Estreo

      with DJ FlacoFlash
      Coming to you all the way live from Bogot, Colombia, Bomba Estreos psychedelic cumbia mix creates a space where transcendent vibes and grooves meet up in one place. According to the bands founder Simn Meja, that was the artistic thrust behind "Amanecer," the bands GRAMMY-nominated album which has received rave reviews from NPR to Rolling Stone and Pitchfork to Billboard.Bomba Estreo is an international touring machine with recent dates on the worlds biggest stages. The group have toured across 40 countries,four continents and played major festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Sonar, Roskilde, Vive Latino, among many others.Bomba Estreo is a night out in a tropical dance club, but I like how we combined that with Liliana singing about very deep emotions about spirituality and change, said the beat-maker/keyboardist Mejia. Amanecer is a very luminous album, a very positive album.In a sense Amanecer is a logical progression from Bombas already established track record in fusing the electro-boogie/hiphop soundtrack of their millennial youth with the tropical folkloric legacy of their homelands elders. From their early success with their first hit single Fuegoa cumbia/house/hiphop/reggae jam--to the lush dance/pop grooves of 2013s Elegancia Tropical, the band has been on an ever-evolving mission of hemispheric musical convergence.Amanecer is Bombas first album for Sony, an extremely fruitful collaboration between Meja, lead singer Liliana Li Samuet, and LA-based veteran producer Ricky Reed (Pitbull, Hason Derulo, Jesse J). We liked the idea of working with someone who wasnt really involved deeply with Latin music, said Meja. Reeds collaboration with the band was seamless and organic, providing a new color and energy to the bands sound. Li, who grew up inspired by equal parts of Colombian folklore, hiphop, Radiohead, and Bjork, felt Reed made me do a lot of new things with melody and opened my mind a lot.From the hectic house of the title track to the EDM-meets-champeta anarchy of Caderas, Soy Yo, Voy, and Fiesta, this sleek new version of Bomba Estreo ripples with the edgy tension of staying out to the wee hours on a dancefloor. Fiesta, the albums first single is particularly explosive, with its catchy deconstruction of carnivalin the Caribbean port city of Barranquilla, a Mardi Gras party second only to Rios in intensity. Marching band drums n bass meet Lis distorted vocals in a hallucinogenic dance of demonic disguises and party all night imperatives.But Amanecer is no one-night stand. Its an album that represents the culmination of so many years of experimentation and wild groove-swapping that has come to blossom in a strong, authentic international pop sound. It shows that no matter how much some people are obsessed with borders, these artificial divisions are unraveling as we speak, and as we listen and dance to the global-identity sound of Bomba Estereo.
