Willemstad - Kuenta I Tambu has created this sound called Tambutronic – a wild and colorful explosion of energy Afro Caribbean music from our own Dushi island Curacao.
It is really challenging to put on paper what kind of music we are talking about therefor without much further introduction we refer you to http://www.kuentaitambu.com/pages/videos.html
Kuenta I Tambu is the band of Roel Calister, Curacao born and raised gentleman, studied International Business in Holland and shortly after receiving his masters joined the Rotterdam Conservatory to master his love of Percussion. In 2005 he opens his own drum school and sure enough by 2009 he start the band called Kuenta I Tambu – which stands for Stories and Tambu.
Tambu being the core of the music he created today Tambutronic, where he emphasis the roots of the Curacao music with cajon, chapi, kachu besides the drums and congas mixed with techno sounds.
The band has played at the North Sea Jazz, Caribbean Sea Jazz Aruba, New York Lincoln Center for the Performance Arts, Kennedy Center for the Performing arts in Washington to name a few and several well know festivals all over the world.
