Como No & Colombiage are delighted to announce that they have been able to reschedule the Bomba Estereo show to Fri 29 Jul at Village Underground. The original show scheduled for XOYO on 21 Jun had to be cancelled for reasons beyond the bands control. The new show continues to be part of Blaze.
Electro-tropical outfit Bomba Estereo are back following last year’s wild appearances at Hackney Empire and Shoreditch Festival as part of Blaze.
Led by the mighty voice of Li Saumet, Colombia’s most uplifting export have been hailed by MTV as ‘The Best New Band In The World’, and their cover of Technotronic’s Pump Up The Jam has been ripping up dance floors across the world.
