Blending the rhythms of traditional cumbia and salsa with electronic production, Columbian duo Bomba Estéreo were putting a contemporary spin on Latin music long before Latin trap and reggaeton entered the mainstream (the group's 2015 song "To My Love" became a nightclub fixture last year thanks to a remix from Puerto Rican DJ Marcos "Tainy" Masís). And while the group has spent much of its career bringing its buoyant live set to stages across the globe, it hasn't forgotten about its home—Bomba Estéreo is currently spearheading a campaign to stop deforestation in its native Columbia. During the band's concert at Taste of Chicago, they'll be joined by Puerto Rican reggae act Cultura Profética.
