Bomba Estereo is a super-energized young band from Bogota, 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 Estereo 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.
