Latin trio Rombai is modern, hip, and just who we want on our playlists as we enter into spring.
Originally formed in 2013 by Fernando “Fer” Vázquez, the Uruguayan singer-songwriter recently reinvented the band, creating a new sound and a new image for a new era.
Along with Vázquez, Rombai now also comprises Colombian vocalist Valeria “La Vale” Emiliani and Bolivian vocalist Megumi “Megu” Bowles, and they have immediately captivated listeners with their fresh and original urban-cumbia fusion.
Newly signed to Sony Music Latin, in September 2018, Rombai re-entered the scene with the release of their hit single “Me Voy,” a breakup anthem laced with relatable lyrics and a little bit of humor. “En cuanto más conozco al amor, más quiero a mi perro,” they sing. “The more I know of love, the more I love my dog.”
The colorful music video was directed by Colombian production company 36 Grados (Piso 21, J Balvin) and filmed in Medellín, Colombia.
Selected by Billboard as one of “10 Latin Artists to Watch in 2019,” Rombai followed up the success of “Me Voy” in January with a remix featuring the contributions of Colombian reggaeton artist Reykon and Spanish pop sensation Abraham Mateo. “Truthfully this was done by our management team,” the group said when asked how the collaboration was born. “We’ve always been excited because we believe that Abraham Mateo and Reykon target different markets and it was a very good opportunity for us.”
Produced by Vázquez, DalePlay, and Laureano Pardo in Miami, “Me Voy” (Remix) eloquently unites Rombai’s unique cumbia fusion with Reykon’s urban style and Mateo’s smooth melodic vocals. “It came from the idea of making some original sounds,” Rombai explained. “That's what Rombai is based on, being different.”
“The truth is that we're enjoying the process,” the trio added about bringing the remix to fruition. “We're very grateful.”
