Li Saumet, of the genre-bending Colombian outfit Bomba Estereo, has been at the forefront of this decade's ñu-cumbia movement. The band has
described their sizzling, eclectic sound as "a mixture of the Caribbean Ocean and the Andes Mountains, with a bit of traffic and some Bogotá
smog." In "Cumbia Prohibida," Saumet teams up with Mexican rapper Niña Dioz, a blonde, blue-eyed waif of a girl who earned her name in Monterrey's
male-dominated underground rap circuit. The track was produced by Argentine producers Villa Diamante and El Remolón; together, they create a
backdrop of beats so infectious their song's "mexicolombiargentino" musical citizen can't even get the pan-Latin, "one love," "one language" thing
straight--"raise the volume because I'm not listening to you."
