Drum! Sing!  Come learn about Curacao and the rhythms of Tambú!

“TAMBÚ — A HIP-SHIMMYING DANCE AND GENRE NAMED AFTER ITS CENTRAL DRUM — is music of ritual (like Brazilian camdomblé and Cuban Santería), protest and partying createdby African slaves and their descendants. It survived a 350-year ban in Curaçao, and is still heavily regulated there. Its beat comes from hand drum and iron percussion — often a hoe blade, used like botha bell and a scraper — and its lyrics, as in other Afro-Caribbean styles, have often held political statements, coded or not.” –  New York Times, January 10, 2014

KiT stand for Kuenta I Tambu and translates to “Stories and Drums” from Papiamentu, the native language of the Curaçao. Although, they are based in Amsterdam, the group maintains a strong connection to their original home and have worked for years sharing the traditional music with the children of the Netherlands. In addition, they have performed all over the world at venues and festivals such as the North Sea jazz Festival, New York City’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington and most recently, the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
