Channeling Colombian rhythms through contemporary electronica, Bomba Estéreo release their new 11-track album on Soundway. Recorded near the coastal city of Barranquilla, Elegancia Tropical has been greeted with much critical acclaim in the U.S., receiving rave reviews from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, The Washington Post and more. NPR called the album a "major step forward for Bomba Estéreo," while The 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. Featuring guest appearances by B'Negao and Buraka Som Sistema.
