You can attach multiple values to a tradition, you can see it as an abandoned and dusty museum exhibition. But some people look beyond that, they look at the possibility of traditions, towards a line that goes through the entire history, to the present. These people are the ones who respect the past, but do not allow themselves to be disturbed, they are an essential part of it. Like the band members of Kuenta Y Tambu, they have transformed the old tambú music of Curaçao into the 21st century phenomenon ‘Tambutronic’.
Kuenta Y Tambu takes the sounds of the Dutch clubs and mixes them effortlessly with the percussive, evocative Caribbean roots. This proves how easy traditional grooves can move in new, unexpected ways.
