LIVE REPORT: Bomba Esteréo

Read my review of Bomba Esteréo’s gig in Madrid last week posted on The Quietus.



“After the show, a procession of Colombians bang drums and sing while marching through Madrid to the after party, traversing the Plaza de España and waving the Colombian flag. Spaniards are roused to their feet, the procession picking up follower after follower. Under the shadow of the towering Edificio España, vacant since its sale in 2005, Spain seems like a nation struggling with standstill, while the victory march of Colombia’s greatest modern band seemingly signals a culture coming into its own.”
