La bomba de tiempo – Aka the time bomb!

Miami drums blog is all about gathering information from local drum circles and drum activities around South Florida. Today I’m posting a special treat, from my home town, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The band name is “Bomba de tiempo” the literally transition is ‘Time bomb’ and it fits perfectly for this heavy weight percussion ensemble. The 17 piece group is conformed by a range of percussion instruments that
include Djembe, campanas and even brazillian surdos. The idea behind the performance is fresh and challenging, the director, Santiago Vazquez, has created a percussion sign language to communicate with each section of the band. The entire show is based on improvisation. Each performer is lead by Vazquez, who triggers different sounds, and tones while creating this hypnotic percussion feast.
I was very happy and surprised to find out that my old percussion teacher, Gabriel Spiller, plays with the Bomba de Tiempo. It has been a long time since I play with him, nearly 10 years…
Their shows include special guest, such as piano legen ‘Lito Vitale’ and bassist extraordinare ‘Javier Malosetti’. The band has just released a new live album, that is been distribuited by Vazquez label…wonder if we’d be able to get it here…!
I’m posting a small video from them, there’s some background info-in spanish- but you get a feeling on how their shows are…
