1 min read

Colombian Band Bomba Estéreo and Spanish legend Manu Chao come together for an exotic post break-up single “Me Duele,” which translates to “It Hurts.” 

Known for their electro and psychedelic cumbia sounds, the band founded by Simón Mejía are thrilled to be working with the “Me Gustas Tú” star, “We are very happy to collaborate with one of the greatest artists ever. This song was created during a wonderful organic collaboration. It’s a song about how pain can always find its relief during difficult times, and life can come back to its essential beauty.” 

Directed and animated by Gustavo Cerquera Benjumea, the radiant and lightsome video features Li Saumet, wearing a bright pink dress with a flower headband, singing among animated trees and branches, as Manu Chao hangs out a framed window, holding a pot of yellow blossoms.

“Me duele” came together when Chao was in Colombia visiting Liliana Saumet. Part of the royalties of the song will be donated to Costeño Social, a school near Saumet’s home. 

Bomba Estéreo recently released “Ojitos Lindos” in collaboration with Bad Bunny.  “Me Duele” follows the release of Deja and “Síganme Los Buenos” that came out this year, which motivated fans to find their way back to nature and its beauty.
