Biography

Diamante Eléctrico is one of the most important proposals of the independent music scene in Colombia. This group has established itself as one of the pillars of national rock, thanks to its visual proposal and its contagious and energetic live shows. Its original, raw and bluesy sound has led them to the mouth of large national and international critics and musicians such as Bob Lefsetz, Draco Rosa and Alejandro Franco, among others; as well as appearances at major music blogs like MTV Iggy, KCRW, Remezcla, Shock and Sounds and Colours.

Their presence in some of the most iconic festivals around the Americas like Culture Collide, Vive Latino, Estereo Picnic Festival, Rock al Parque Festival, Zocalo Festival, and Bogota Music Market, to name a few, demonstrates the versatility of the band and their international projection and potential by having a kindred musical genre to many of today's musical offerings. As a result, the renowned American band Foo Fighters invited the 'power trio' to open its first concert in Bogota on Saturday January 31st, 2015 at Nemesio Camacho El Campin Stadium.

Their debut album ”Diamante Eléctrico" was released in June 2013 through Pledge Music, becoming the first Colombian band in releasing an album through a Crowdfunding platform. Their second single ”Nos Rompemos Igual" reached #1 in the public radio in Colombia.

In three years, Diamante Electrico has performed over 180 shows, a record for a emerging rock band in Colombia that allowed them to establish as one of the best live acts in the country.

In March 2015, Diamante Electrico released his their second album entitled "B" through Rolling Stone Colombia Magazine, becoming the first band in the world to be distributed in the physical edition of the publication. "B" has led the band to perform in 6 bars in the different counties of Bogota, in 7 cities of Colombia, and in their first international tour held in Mexico City, Los Angeles, Nashville and New York, where the band concluded with two presentations in the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC).

They were special guests of the Rock al Parque Festival 2015, alternating with international artists at the close of the festival, where they performed in front of over 70,000 people, as well as for the closing of the Zocalo Festival held in Mexico.

Diamante Electrico won Shock the award for "Best Rock Artist" in 2013 and the Chilean POTQ "Revelation Band Iberoamericana" Award in 2014.

In 2015 Diamante Electrico received two nominations to the Latin Grammys for Best Rock Album with their production “B”, and Best Rock Song with “Todo Va a Arder”.
