Inspired by traditional Afro Caribbean music from Curaçao in the Dutch Antilles and electronic dance music or edm, Kuenta i Tambu has created a brand new sound. They have found a balance between electronic sound samples, singing, chanting, and the infectious rhythms played by ritual tambú drums.
Based in Amsterdam, the group came together in 2005 after a series of educational projects at schools and theaters to introduce the music and culture of Curaçao to children in the Netherlands. KiT’s live shows are high energy, with hypnotizing beats, and dazzling percussive interplay between the band members. They have performed around the world and collaborate and produce remixes for international artists and DJ’s such as Gregor Salto, DJ Roog and Dutch Hip Hop sensation The Opposites.
