South Texas “barrio-big-band” Bombasta blends horn-driven cumbia rhythms with politically-charged, cerebral flows into an infectious, borderless, Spanglish dance party for the 21st century. The energy of their spirited live shows vibrantly redefines protest music with inspired unencumbered compositions, revealing honest, resistance themed vocals that ring true now more than ever.
After successfully navigating the Texas live music scene for over a decade, Bombasta has been recognized as Artists of the Year and Best Latin Alternative Band by peers & publications across the Lone Star State. This veteran ensemble is now spreading their conscious crusade from festival and theater stages, to the studio with their long awaited full length album.
