Agressive Carnival in new Lao Ra video to “Bang Boom”

Colombian power babe, Lao Ra, shares video to the lastest single “Bang Boom”. Song about strength and skills of adaptation.

Before she added a couple of letters, ‘Bang Boom’ – Lao Ra’s new war-cry of a single – started life as a song about bamboo. “Bamboo might not look powerful, but it’s stronger than steel,” reports the Colombian, London-based singer songwriter. “It might bend, but it won’t break.”

The other thing about bamboo is that once it’s taken root, it’s pretty much unstoppable – an apt ambition for Lao Ra, who uses the phrase “girl power in the jungle” to explain her music’s multi sensory, collage-feel (which variously takes in Colombia’s cultural climate and carnivalesque beats to the strong female icons – from Debbie Harry and Madonna to MIA and Gwen Stefani – she idolised whilst growing up).

Watch and listen “Bang Boom” below.
