Bomba Estereo y Will Smith
Bomba Estéreo & Will Smith will perform their new collaboration “Fiesta (Remix)” at the Latin GRAMMYs 2015. The Latin GRAMMYs air November 19th live from Las Vegas on Univision.
The official music video for “Fiesta (Remix)” was released this past Friday and is available for viewing exclusively on Apple Music. The video was directed by Carlos Pérez and filmed in Los Angeles.
Watch a behind the scenes clip from the “Fiesta (Remix)” music video shoot which tells the story behind their new collaboration with Will Smith. The “Fiesta (Remix)” is available now at all digital music services.

Smith, who initially discovered Bomba Estéreo during a recent visit to Colombia, fell in love with the “electro tropical” style that Simón and Liliana are known for and was thrilled to collaborate. The music video for the remix was recently filmed in Los Angeles and will be released shortly.

Performing at the Latin Grammy Awards is a huge honor for me. I’ll be surrounded by so many talented artists whose music has such profound global impact.  I can’t think of a more perfect place for Bomba Estereo and I to perform “Fiesta Remix” for the first time onstage“, said Will Smith.
The original track “Fiesta” is currently nominated for “Record of the Year” in the 2015 Latin GRAMMYs. Billboard described “Fiesta” as a “party anthem dripping with bass and champeta” while The Guardian (UK) called it “as much of a heater as they’ve ever released.” “Fiesta” is featured on the group’s latest album Amanecer, nominated for “Best Alternative Music Album” in the Latin GRAMMYs.
We are very happy to see how the reach of Colombian music continues to grow. For us, the opportunity to perform with such a great artist as Will Smith is a clear example of this. In addition, we feel very proud and happy to be able to bring the Colombian fiesta and the spirit of carnaval to the entire world”, stated Bomba Estéreo.

Rolling Stone says: “Musicians from all over Latin America are fusing old school folk sounds with modern electronic and rap styles… the leaders of the scene are Bomba Estéreo.”

Bomba Estéreo is an international touring machine with recent dates on the world’s biggest stages. The group have toured across 40 countries, four continents and played major festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Sonar, Roskilde, Vive Latino, among many others.
