Bomba Estéreo

In their first decade together, Bogotá’s Bomba Estéreo has perfected an infectious fusion of Afro-Colombian folk music and trippy electronica, nabbed the title of “Best New Band in the World” (courtesy of MTV Iggy) and emerged as a mainstay on the American festival circuit. Seemingly without trying, they’ve also remixed the tired concept of the “party band” — thanks in no small part to the wild synergy of vocalist Liliana Saumet and founder/bassist/keyboardist Simón Mejía. The Texas-bred Pachanga Latino Music Festival brings the quartet to town on the heels of this summer’s beach-party soundtrack Amanecer. $20, 7pm Thu, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersa.com. — Bryan Rindfuss
