June 29, 2022 - Diamante Eléctrico, the Colombian duo composed by Juan Galeano and Daniel Álvarez, premiered last Thursday their new single "Colibrí", the second release off of their upcoming album " Leche de Tigre". "Colibrí" - Spanish for hummingbird - is a love song, inspired by the figure of the hummingbird in Mexican culture, where it is worshiped as it represents the fallen warriors and their resurrection. With the metaphor used in the song, a parallel is created between the hummingbird and love, in the arrival of one person to the life of another, knowing that both are free and that it's not possible to lock free spirits in sentimental cages. This song, which is the second single from Diamante Eléctrico's next album, has a great influence from Bill Withers and it is a perfect bridge between Mexico and Colombia, with a seventies inspired beat creating a musical link between the musical cultures of both countries.

The video materializes an aesthetic and creative concept based entirely on the elements of a hummingbird and its flight, successfully emulated with aerial drone shots throughout the video. Directed by Adrián Pastrana, an admirer and follower of the Colombian duo for many years. In addition, the video's color palette and composition pay homage to the bird that inspired both the song and the video that embodies it. Pastrana and his team chose to incorporate elements of the Mexican culture such as the lotería nacional (national lottery): a colorful and eye-catching element that enhances both video and song, adding flavor to the new sound emerging from the Colombian duo, with strong Mexican influences. Last but not least, the video stars a young female whose first name is Huitzilin, who perfectly personifies, with passion and sensuality, the hummingbird through her name in the Náhuatl language.

Diamante Eléctrico, the Colombian duo formed by Juan Galeano and Daniel Álvarez, recently announced the most important show of their career: an unprecedented night at the Palacio de los Deportes in Bogotá, on December 7, 2022, to celebrate 10 years into the band's music and career.
