“Write a new song in 1 hour and perform it live on radio.” No pressure… That was the assignment during our appearance at 3FM’s radio show Xnoizz, and so that’s what we did. Listeners could send in their proposals for a song title, from which we chose ‘Los Besos del Ritmo’. We kind of like the result! What do you think? View below:
“Als één van de laatste bands van deze editie van Noorderslag rest TenTemPiés de taak de mensen in de Foyer nog één keer op te zwepen voor de finale, een laatste muzikale uurtje. Hun Damsko Mestizo, een ‘Amsterdamse mix’ van muziekstijlen als ska en latin rock, blijkt die duidelijke opdracht meer dan makkelijk aan te kunnen.” - 3VOOR12
TenTemPiés is an international collective of musicians based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Their music is a powerful and very danceable blend of flavours, mixing Latin Rock with Reggae and Ska with an Amsterdam twist: Damsko Mestizo!
Shortly after their formation in 2008 the band manages to build a strong live reputation, being compared to acts such as Manu Chao, Gogol Bordello, Ska-P and La Pegatina. Written by Maurino Alarcón and his band, their characteristic music is inspired by political issues and social injustice worldwide, adding a deeper layer to their festive performances.
Since the release of their well-received debut album ‘Canto Para Gritar’ in 2011, TenTemPiés has been on the road almost non-stop. After their club tour an extensive festival season follows in 2012 as well as tours in Germany, France and Spain. In March 2013 the band crosses the ocean for a tour through Chili, back to their musical roots. Upon returning in Amsterdam, TenTemPiés release their EP ‘A Casa Tierra’, including a remix by award-winning Dutch composer/producer Perquisite.
2014 welcomes the band with lots of new highlights, such as a tour in China and shows at festivals like Down The Rabbit Hole, Zwarte Cross, Gentse Feesten and Into The Great Wide Open. “They proved it at Paaspop, but TenTemPiés is a sure thing at any festival. Euphoric performance!” (3VOOR12). After the release of the new single ‘Quiero Saltar’ in June the band receives much airplay. End of July TenTemPiés tours across Europe in collaboration with their sponsor O’Neill.
On October 24 the new full-length album ‘Rebelucionario’ is released, presented at a packed Melkweg the day before. With this new project, produced by Dutch reggae icon Pieter Both (BEEF!), TenTemPiés kicks of 2015 with a successful showcase at Eurosonic Noorderslag and a national clubtour, followed by a second tour in Chile in March where they will present their new album to the Latin American public.
