SOFI TUKKER shares a new single “Playa Grande”. A cross-continental collaboration with Colombian elegancia tropical duo Bomba Estéreo, “Playa Grande” is sung in three different languages – English, Spanish, and Portuguese, as well as a little Spanglish and Portuñol. The track’s tropical flair underscores its message of surrendering to your bliss and indulging in uninhibited communal dancing. Sophie and Li from Bomba Estéreo dance across the verses and make the chorus a mission statement, “Vamos a Bailar! Bailar! Bailar!”. Bomba Estéreo joined SOFI TUKKER onstage at Coachella to perform the song live and SOFI TUKKER will be taking “Playa Grande” on the road for their shows this fall.
The music video sees SOFI TUKKER teaming up once more with Mac Boucher, the creative mind behind the “Best Friend,” “Batshit,” and “Fuck They” music videos. For the clip, SOFI TUKKER traveled to Costeño Beach in Santa Marta, located next to the Tayrona Park, a Natural Reserve Park in Colombia where the Andes end at the sea. It is the highest mountain in the world next to the ocean. The Tayronas (indigenous population) call the park, ‘The World’s Lung’. The video is an ode to the earth, specifically to the sacred land that Li from Bomba Estéreo lives on.
