Colombian rock band Diamante Eléctrico rocked a packed house Tuesday night (May 31) during their intimate concert at The Mint.
The Latin Grammy-winning trio — lead vocalist and bass player Juan Galeano, Andee Zeta on the drums and guitarist Daniel Álvarez — kicked off their four-year anniversary celebration in Los Angeles playing some of their hit songs like “Las horas,” “Duele como yo,” “Nos rompemos igual,” “Kamikase” and their newest single “Placebo,” which had the crowd singing along and rocking on the dance floor.
Diamante Eléctrico, who in March opened for the The Rolling Stones in Colombia, also sang their Spanish-language version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Up Around the Bend” which will be part of the multilingual tribute album Quiero Creedence featuring covers by Juan Gabriel, El Tri, Búnbury, Juanes, Ozomatli, among others.
The up-and-coming rockeros embarked on their U.S./Mexico tour at the end of May, taking their powerful and energetic showcase to cities like Guadalajara, Monterrey and Tijuana. L.A. and San Diego are their only two stops in the U.S.
Following their Latin Grammy win for Best Rock Album in 2015, Diamante Eléctrico went on to produce a new album due in September, which they finished recording in Bogotá before going on this tour. “We thought we should do a new record after the Grammy because each one of us were in different stages in our life personally and spiritually, so we want to show that in this new record which we titled La Gran Oscilación,” Galeano told Billboard.
