Had a quite nice weekend, thanks for asking. Did a bit of this, a bit of that, and Friday was pretty major too. Which leads me to letting you in on this news. Dig it!

Introducing: Bomba Estereo

I'll gladly accept any slaps on the wrist for sleeping on the pure radness that is Bomba Estereo. Merging folk sounds from their Colombian-Caribbean coast like cumbia, bullerengue and champeta, all mixed up with electronica, reggae and hip-hop, this "new to Beastonia outfit produces an explosive dance sound.

Thankfully, I was able to catch their performance at the Levi's FADER Fort during SXSW last month, and it was easily one of the most talked about sets of the week. Subsequently, Bomba Estereo just announced that they are confirmed to play at the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN.

 

The band dropped by the East Village Radio booth at SXSW (check the pic!), and let me tell you...they're sexy, stylish, and sound like a bundle of summer fun. 

 

Watch an interview with Bomba Estereo below.
