Rombi nime all on mõnevõrra muutuva koosseisuga seltskond tegutsenud alates 1997. aastast. Nüüd on ansambli liikmeteks Peeter Salmela – sitar, elektrikitarr, Arno Kalbus – tablad, trummikomplekt, Kristjan Jõemägi – santoor, djembe, Siim Soop – kontrabass. Rombi loomingus on elemente groove-popist, rokist, jazzist ja folgist. Tugevad mõjutused on ka traditsioonilisest tabla ja sitarimuusikast. Romb salvestab oma lood ise. Välja on antud albumid: CD "Tromboia" (2002), CD "Ruumiline" (2007)

An ongoing interest in the rest of the world has taken the members of this band on voyages far into it’s various cultural environs, where they have studied local musical traditions and learned to play exotic instruments. This ongoing process has enriched ROMB’s creative output and has inspired their ongoing output and creation of quite peculiar sounds. ROMB is rather versatile — they can give a gently grooving world-music-influenced performance, play Oriental music of classical and folkloric origin, or turn into an ecstatic group of wild percussionists pounding away at African and Arabian rhythms.
