Music for the mind and body. You don’t hear that every day. Hailing from Amsterdam but with Chilean blood running through their veins, TenTemPiés make you think and dance at the same time. Crafting their own unique blend of rock, ska, reggae and rumba, they break away from genre stereotypes like ‘mestizo’ and instead choose to classify their sound simply as ‘music’.
TenTemPiés has earned their live reputation mile for mile; touring around Europe, Chili and even China, this band is known to turn every show into a true people’s festival. Written by Maurino Alarcón, an offspring of Chilean political refugees, their characteristic music is inspired by political issues and social injustice worldwide, adding a deeper layer to their festive performances; delivering a powerful message while evoking a smile at the same time.
Since the release of the debut album ‘Canto Para Gritar’ in 2011, TenTemPiés has been on the road almost non-stop. After performing at the main Dutch clubs and festivals such as Paaspop, Down The Rabbit Hole, Zwarte Cross and Concert at Sea, 2014 welcomes the band with the release of their well-received second album ‘Rebelucionario’, produced by Dutch reggae icon Pieter Both (BEEF!). The singles ‘Canto Para Gritar’, ‘Dame Tu Mano’ and ‘Enciende La Luz’ receive much airplay on national radio and television, as well as across the ocean.
Fast forward to 2017: their selfproduced album ‘A Mi Propio Paso’ (at my own pace) is born. This album is partly recorded in Argentina by none less than Mario Breuer, who is responsible for the sound on a long list of legendary records in South-American rock history such as ‘Vasos Vacios’ (Los Fabulosos Cadillacs). Having become part of the TenTemPiés family, Pieter Both is featured on the album, as well as Belle Doron, the singer of the popular Dutch duo CUT_.
“It turned out to be a very personal record”, according to frontman and singer Maurino. “We have made a quest into ourselves, uncovering our true identity. ‘A Mi Propio Paso’ tells about the path we have chosen in life, in music, in love. From the moments of despair to moments of euphoria.. This work comes directly from the heart and is the result of a 9-year long journey that feels as if we have only just begun.”
