CD Reviews

This group is set to 'BLOW UP'
vida | nueva york | 07/14/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Debut album from this Colombian outfit made up of Li Saumet [firey fierce vocalist] and Simon Mejia [bassist, composer] - Blow Up is a confident debut from this group who have created some buzz on their recent trips to SXSW and the LAMC in 2009. Even the NY Times took notice last week, calling the group's live show, "...kaleidoscopic and danceable, mingling the clip-clop bounce of cumbia and another Colombian rhythm, champeta, with echoey guitar, reggae backbeats and the singing and rapping of Liliana Saumet". Blow Up, only 44 minutes, packs in the all the energy and bite the band represents. Favorite tracks: 'Juana', 'Fuego' [obvious single] and 'Cosita Rica'."

"I'm Colombian and discovered Bomba Estereo in my last visit, since that moment I've seen how this group is made of great musicians that create a fantastic mix between traditional Colombian rhythms with electro sounds, hip-hop and reggae. I see a very promising future in the Latin Music scenario for Bomba Estereo. When I first hear the first single of this album - fuego. I didn't hesitate to go and buy the album."
