Bomba Estéreo

Bomba Estéreo was founded in Colombia in 2006 by musician Simón Mejía and singer Li Saumet. Together, they created a unique project that would become one of the most sought-after music groups in the world. Throughout their career, Bomba Estéreo has toured all over the world, playing at some of the most important music festivals, clubs, and venues, and attracting millions of people to its eclectic, avant-garde fusion of electronic and Caribbean sounds.

Bomba Estéreo has been nominated for two Grammys, for their albums Amanecer and Ayo, and has also been nominated for six awards at the Latin Grammys, where the band performed “Fiesta” at the ceremony’s main show with Hollywood star Will Smith. In 2017, Bomba Estéreo was invited to tour with Arcade Fire’s Everything Now World Tour, doing 13 shows together across Europe, the U.S., and Latin America. In 2018, Bomba Estéreo reached the worldwide Top 500 most listened on Spotify.

In early 2021, the band released “Agua,” and “Aire” the first two EP´s from their forthcoming album Deja, set to be released in full this year. Inspired by nature, the album will be released in four segments representing the elements: “Agua” (Water), “Aire” (Air), “Tierra” (Earth), and “Fuego” (Fire).
