Kuenta i Tambú

Inspired by traditional Afro-Caribbean music from Curaçao and European dance, Kuenta i Tambú has created a brand new sound. They cleverly create a balance between electronic sound samples, singing, chanting, and the infectious rhythms played by ritual tambú drums.Some call it global bass, others prefer labelling it Tambutronic. The music is a wild and colorful explosion of energy, and always seems to set off some serious movements on the dance floor.Kuenta i Tambú translates to "Stories and Drums" from Papiamentu, the language spoken on the islands of Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire (Dutch Antilles).
