about

Recorded near the coastal city of Barranquilla, ‘Elegancia Tropical’ has been greeted with much critical acclaim in the US, receiving rave reviews from New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, Washington Post and more. NPR called the album a “major step forward for Bomba Estéreo” while Washington Post described it as a “more cultivated turn in the group’s sound but never at the expense of the roiling Afro Caribbean grooves that galvanized previous releases.”

Since their performance in Roskilde (Denmark, 2010), where they first received international acclaim for their eye popping live show, Bomba Estéreo has played over 250 shows in more than 100 different cities and performed at some of the most prestigious festivals around the world including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and WOMAD.

“A dynamic mix: electronics, cumbia, soaring guitars and impassioned vocals, performed with raw intensity” - NPR
“Kinetic, party-starting blend of cumbia, champeta, dub and psychedelia” - ABC News
“Rock star presence and pop fireworks” - Rolling Stone
