Bomba Estéreo Live + New Releases, Mixed Bag

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Bomba Estéreo is a super-energized young band from Bogotá , Colombia whose enervating sound is an electro-psychedelicized potpourri of that vibrant city's many musical influences: traditional bullerengue, cumbia, African-influenced champeta, reggae, dub, hip-hop - not to mention rock and roll.

It's been a breakout year for the band, which made a smashing North American debut at SXSW and blew away a field full of Danes at the legendary Roskilde festival. Bomba Estéreo joins us for a live set at the tail end of its first east coast tour - in support of new CD "Blow Up" on Nacional Records - before flying off to Amsterdam's famous Melkweg and further European adventures.

Many thanks to Nena Sierra, Nacional Records, Polen Records (an excellent Bogotá indie label that releases the band's cds in Colombia, and other good stuff) and of course to our Illustrious Engineer, Bil Bowen for another fabulous mix, and to our assistant, Intern Mike.

God they are great (and the sound is superb), I guess I'm a hipster.

Glad you liked it Pete! I'd say they're "of the moment" in a good way - and therefore so are you...
