Bandshell

Eventbrite Music Series: Bomba Estéreo + Delsonido

Saturday, August 10 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, 2019
2019-08-10T00:00:00-04:00
11225, NY, Brooklyn

Bomba Estéreo and Delsonido will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Led by founder Simón Mejía and the explosive singer and rapper Li Saumet, the Bogotá-based electro cumbia superstars Bomba Estéreo make “kinetic dance songs that jitter with so much electricity and energy that they sound as if they could blow up your speakers.” (Washington Post) They’ll close our 41st season with a bang. Bomba has released four critically acclaimed full length albums, including most recently, 2017’s Ayo.

Fiery local Colombian expat outfit Delsonido gets the party started right. Founded in 2014 in Brooklyn, NY, Delsonido came together when two of its founding members Elkin Pautt and Ivan Garizabalo, Colombians hailing from Barranquilla, wanted an outlet for blending their Caribbean influences with the sounds they were encountering in the vibrant NYC music scene.
