Bomba Estéreo Rocks Indigenous Roots
Back in August, the day before their latest digital album was released, Bomba Estéreostopped by Portland to start their extensive international tour. This new album, Ayo, differs from previous ones with heart-wrenching melodies such as in Duele, at the same time, bringing us great new videos including Internacionales and the viral single celebrating uniqueness, Soy Yo. Of course everyone remembers (and let’s be honest, still rocks to) their 2008 hit Fuego.
For the August 26, 2017 episode of Intersections Radio, I sat down with Simón Mejía of Bomba Estéreo at the Crystal Ballroom just before their concert. We talked about this new album exploring indigenous roots, developing the anti-bullying anthem of Soy Yo, and more. Check out the podcast!
Air dates: 8/26/2017 (KBOO), 11/2/2017 (KXRY)
