Live Video: Bomba Estéreo

Bomba Estereo

Last week, Bogota, Colombia’s Bomba Estéreo dropped on Seattle like an a-bomb. Performing in the bunker-like KEXP in-studio space, bassist/producer Simon Mejia and vocalist Liliana “Li” Saumet along with Kike Egurrola on drums and Julian Salazar on guitar, blew the lid off the Midday Show as they combined modern rock with traditional cumbia, while touching on a variety of contents and styles: from hip-hop to Afro beat, pysch rock to reggae. Check out why DJ Cheryl Waters was all a-flustered:

    Juanes mentioned Bomba Estéreo on his twits and I heard them. Wow they are awesome! Cumbia, Rumba with electro sound and Li’s voice is so sweet with a lot of feeling that made me dance that day.
    I am Mexican but I have to admit that Colombia is a great and beautiful place with music that makes you dance like crazy.
