This Morning is a Morning for "Fuego" by Bomba Estereo
I have been on a real LA rock/electronica/fusion/neo-cumbia/neo-tango/neo-tropical/rap-en-espanol jag in recent weeks. I'll post some of my favorites here in in the near future. Bomba Estereo is from Bogota and their second album was released in Colombia in 2008, with a U.S. market release of Blow Up (re-titled) in 2009. They are one of numerous bands in the traditional-music-meets-electronica sub-genere that has been pretty popular in Latin America for the last decade or so.
This movement has gone in numerous different musical directions and a few groups have had crossover success in the U.S. (see Nortec Collective as a prominent example). "Electro Tropical" is how Bomba Estereo describe thier own music. It is good stuff, Maynard. CD's and downloads at all the usual places, mofos.
