Behind The Stereo with Salomon Beda

Hi, I’m Salomón Beda, and this is Behind The Stereo.  

If your music were a movie, what do you think it would be?

If my music were a film, I think it would be a Wes Anderson film, because I like to take people on an adventure with my music, I like to take them to different worlds, to different colors. 

How did you first get into music, and what inspired you to become an independent artist?

I got into music, because for me, music is a necessity. I always say that music is like nutrition, for me at least, like food. Without it, I couldn’t be able to survive. I need it to express myself and have that freedom.

What are your 3 favorite Colombian meals? 

I would say that my 3 favorite Colombian meals are ajiaco, bandeja paisa y arroz con coco.

If your songs were a Colombian dish, what would it be?

I would say it would be “mojarra frita” (fried fish), “arroz con coco” (rice and coconut) and fried plantains. My father was born in Barranquilla, the coast of Colombia, and I was born in Miami, so my music has always been inspired by the sand and the Caribbean.

Mention 3 feelings you would like your songs to express.

Gratitude, nostalgia and love.

One of your songs is called ‘Bacana,’ tell us what the word ‘Bacana’ means.

“Bacana” is a Colombian slang for cool, awesome, dope.

 What do you think is the best thing about being a Latin American artist?

The diversity and the culture we have, it’s so inspiring to make music. Just the food, the sounds, just the mix of history and culture. I love it, proud to be latin.

What is your favorite part of being a SoStereo artist?

The care and the love that I get from the SoStereo team. I know as an independent artist, you guys have my back and I love that.
