¡Bomba! may have formed in Edmonton, but its roots spread across the world, with members from Chile, Brazil, Cuba, and Edmonton, ¡Bomba! melds Latin and Canadian styles for a uniquely Albertan take on Latin music. Branching across salsa, songo, rumba, funk and jazz, ¡Bomba! throws a little bit of everything into the mix.
Mario Allende, ¡Bomba!'s drummer, was born in Chile but moved to Canada as a child. He describes the bands' unconventional musical styling as "a combination of where we come from and where we live."
