Bomba Estereo gained popularity in the U.S. after appearing at the famous Bonnaroo and South by Southwest festivals in 2010. In the same year they were chosen by MTV Iggy as the best new band.
Lead vocalist Liliana Saumet was described by MTV Iggy as having “an elastic voice that growls, purrs, and shrieks, and an electrifying stage presence that pulls all eyeballs to her tiny, childlike frame, she’s got the stuff that separates superstars from the rest of us”.
Bomba Estereo also performed at Austin City Limits music festival in 2011 and Outside Lands in San Fransisco in 2012. Their songs have also appeared on the television show, Dexter, and in the film, Limitless.
