Smith, who initially discovered Bomba Estéreo during a recent visit to Colombia, fell in love with the “electro tropical” style that Simón and Liliana are known for and was thrilled to collaborate. The music video for the remix was recently filmed in Los Angeles and will be released shortly.
The original track “Fiesta” is currently nominated for “Record of the Year” in the 2015 Latin GRAMMYs. Billboard described “Fiesta” as a “party anthem dripping with bass and champeta” while The Guardian (UK) called it “as much of a heater as they’ve ever released.” “Fiesta” is featured on the group’s latest album Amanecer, nominated for “Best Alternative Music Album” in the Latin GRAMMYs.
Rolling Stone says: “Musicians from all over Latin America are fusing old school folk sounds with modern electronic and rap styles… the leaders of the scene are Bomba Estéreo.”
Bomba Estéreo is an international touring machine with recent dates on the world’s 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.
