In the past few years our dude Indian Jones has been championing this band from Amsterdam, Netherlands and now they return with their new EP “Muchi Danki”.
“Inspired by Traditional Afro Caribbean Music from Curaçao and European Dance, Kuenta i Tambu has created a brand new sound! They cleverly found a balance between electronic sound samples, singing and chanting and the infectious rhythms played by ritual tambú drums.
Some call it Global Bass, others prefer labeling it Tambutronic but one thing is for sure: it’s a wild and colorful explosion of energy, and always seems to set off some serious movements on the dancefloor!”
Here’s what they say:
“Last summer, while on the road, we came up with some new material to be shared with all of you. Compared to our last release, Santa Electra, we chilled out a little bit, just so that we could have the best of both worlds on this record: a relaxing sound as well as the partymode-tracks.
1. Where To Go
This Afro -Tronic anthem was made as a guiding light to all people on the verge of throwing in the towel due to the distress of modern-day society. Enjoy this smooth and uplifting track encouraging you to pursue your heart’s desire and to go where you’ve never been before.
2. Muchu Danki
This original tambutronic track symbolises Kuenta i Tambu’s never ending gratitude towards everything and everyone that have been helping or participating in any way in realising so many wonderful dreams and giving us so many opportunities.
3. Peace Of Mind
With this neo-Dancehall love song we place ourselves in the shoes of a couple, caught in a recent plague that seems to hit relationships nowadays. “The inability to communicate due to anger and egos!” This time the guy, in a whirlwind of emotions, is trying to get his lady to sit down, relax and have a talk.
4. Mi Kueru
A love song with a twist. This Afro-Curaçaoan bubbling banger narrates the passionate relationship between a percussionist, his drum and its skin: hitting it hard while being gentle at the same time. True Love”
