Taking different routes to the same destination, these players from different heritages all landed in Edmonton and coalesced to share one musical vision. Drummer Mario Allende, bassist Rubim de Toledo from Brazil, keyboardist Chris Andrew is from Edmonton.
The autumn of 2001 brought with it the change that fully realized Bomba, when esteemed percussionist Israel "Toto" Berriel relocated from Matanzas, Cuba to Calgary, Alberta.
As Bomba did with their debut release, 'Lo Que Bomba te Dá' (what Bomba gives you) they recorded, mixed, and produced their second album 'A Mi Me Gusta' (I like it) by themselves.
These musical adventurers span an astonishingly wide array of evocative styles on this new recording. Bomba is a new generation of musicians well schooled in traditional Latin music forms from timba to rumba, to son, to salsa, to songo, as well as North American funk and jazz. Dexterously versatile, their musical transculturalization has led to many very interesting fusions and innovative forms of expression.
Bomba's lively, lusty love affair with Latin music is evidenced by their live shows. The band's irresistible dance rhythms and alluring grooves never fail to bring audiences to their feet, and keep them moving.
