“Bomba Estéreo’s set at the Bowery Ballroom... was kaleidoscopic and danceable.”
- JON PARELES / NY TIMES

“One of the most promising bands to emerge from South America in the new millenium, Bomba Estéreo merges sticky cumbia beats with electronica.”
- APPLE iTUNES.

“Bomba Estereo... is turning plenty of heads with its song "Fuego," the exhilarating lead single from its debut album... playfully referring to both Colombia's burgeoning dance culture and traditional attire in the same breath.”
- BILLBOARD

“[Bomba Estereo’s] album, ‘Blow Up’, quickly threw them on a global map filled with
excellent cumbia, champeta, and reggaeton groups. Thus far, they are one of the best.”
- HUFFINGTON POST

“The Bogotá group live up to their explosive moniker with an infectiously danceable sound that often expands into fairly trippy territory.”
- LA WEEKLY

“Natural sounds mix with tensely urban ones on the band’s new CD, “Blow Up”… singer
Liliana Saumet delivers the songs in a curt style that carries the force of ace rap.”
-NY DAILY NEWS

“Love the loping cumbia funk of Bomba Estereo's ‘Blow Up’… Yummy groove, excellent for
sweat-greased summer booty. Did anyone ever think cumbia would be so cool?”
- MIAMI HERALD

“Saumet's vocals hold everything together, preventing Bomba Estéreo from sounding like yet another combo wanly mixing tropical styles with club beats. She has a forceful, full- throated attack; she can rap with rhythmic ingenuity, nonchalantly juggling American hip- hop, reggaeton, and dancehall, but she can also sing passionately, nailing melodies with impressive pitch control and emotional snap.”
- CHICAGO READER
