A trio based in Hamburg, Germany, personify the Grita! label multi-cultural ethic with members from Chile, Brazil and Germany, singing in Spanish, Portuguese, English and German, with a little French thrown in for thrills. They sing about poverty and fame from firsthand experience. Their Ska-tinged Jazz-Punk-Cabaret delivers memorable hooks in a truly unique package of fancy rawking energy that only a band with distinctly different personalities could offer.
Niños con Bombas began in Santiago, Chile, where singer/guitarist and songwriter Daniel Puente Encina, and his ex-band, Pinochet Boys, an infamous Punk Rock band, drew not only the attention of a major fan base, but the auth too, landing in jail on many occasions. After a two year odyssey traveling in São Paulo, Madrid, London and ending in Berlin, Daniel saw Brazilian bass player and graduated biologist Alex Menck in an empty Berlin club, playing bad renditions of Rolling Stones songs. An entire year passed before Daniel and Alex started writing songs. One week before their first gig, they met German drummer Norman Jankowsky, who came from a well-known heavy metal band called Seven Seals. Fast and precise, he was the perfect compliment, and Niños con Bombas was born.
