Bomba Estéreo was formed in 2005 as a project by visual artist/musician, Simón Mejía, who started to form a collective of different DJ’s and visual artists, including some of the most recognized young artists in the country. In 2006, Bomba Estéreo released their first album under the name of “Vol.1”, in which Simón included a featuring with Li Saumet, a female MC who sang over one of the tracks. This collaboration gave birth to a new musical relationship between Li and Simón.
After “Vol. 1”, Bomba Estéreo flew to the States to perform in LAMC (Latin Alternative Music Conference), where they met Tomás Cookman, chairman of Nacional Records, and closed a digital distribution deal. Upon returning to Bogotá, Felipe Álvarez from Polen Records met the band and began releasing Bomba Estéreo in Colombia.
The stage was set for the release of Bomba Estéreo’s second album, “Estalla” (“Blow Up” in the US), released in Colombia in September 2008 and presented live with the new full band with Kike Egúrrola on drums, Julián Salazar on guitar, Li as the lead singer and Simón on bass, programming and band direction.
In July 2009, Nacional Records released “Blow Up” for the US to rave reviews from top publications, taking the group around the world towards international recognition. That summer, Bomba Estéreo played the mythical New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and Central Park Summerstage, with the New York Times calling the performance, “kaleidoscopic and danceable”. More recently, the band collaborated with Levi’s Jeans for their “Pioneer Sessions” program, wth the band covering Technotronic’s “Pump Up The Jam”. MTV also named the band, “The Best New Band In The World”, in 2010. Between 2011 and 2012, Bomba Estéreo kept touring the world in support of their “Estalla/Blow Up” and finishing the recording process for their third album ‘Elegancia Tropical’, launched in second semester of 2012.
