September 16, 2021 - Diamante Eléctrico, one of the most exciting bands to come out of Colombia, is taking their funky, dance-party sound to the next level!

Dropping Friday, September 17th, the unparalleled four-song performance is a celebration of the music from their beloved home country of Colombia, featuring a mix of Afro-Colombia roots music and modern pop, with guest performers Mario Galeano, best known as the musical master mind behind Frente Cumbiero and Nicolai Fella from LosPetitFellas. Diamante highlights some of their most emblematic tunes revisited in a new format, including songs from their highly anticipated and latest studio album "Mira Lo Que Me Hiciste Hacer".
Their performance in el "El Tiny" for Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts comes just before the kick-off of a major US tour, in support of Mexico's leading alternative rock band Cafe Tacvba, which opens at the Irving Plaza in New York City on November 2nd.
