“It’s a love song about a couple that meets on a beach and now they’re in love. It’s got a very breezy, Caribbean vibe to it,” says Liliana, whose tropical Soy Banana Girl swimwear line is also prominently product-placed.
Shot near vocalist Liliana Saumet ‘s hometown of Santa Marta, the video is as much a love poem to the Caribbean coastal town as it is a celebration of a relationship between two people.
“I like to involve my city in my music because I feel they are one,” Liliana says .
Considered one of the best Latin albums of 2015, Amanecer is Bomba Estéreo’s first release through a major label, Sony Music Latin, and their first time working with an outside producer, Ricky Reed ( Jason Derulo ‘s “Wiggle” and Pitbull ‘s “Fireball” ).
The LP’s first single is “Fiesta,” a Baranquilla Carnival anthem that incorporates Kwaito, an African genre of music fusing hip-hop, house, reggae, and traditional African rhythms.
“It’s a schizophrenic track,” says bassist Simón Mejía . “It’s like you’re in one party, and then all of sudden, you get thrown into this other party. It’s two worlds told through one story. I think it pretty much sums up the album — a fusion of Colombian carnivals and folkloric rhythms like cumbia and champeta with the world of electronic music; beats and bass and synths, which people listen to all over the world, regardless of language.”
