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. 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 new highlights: 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). End of July TenTemPiés tours across Europe in collaboration with their sponsor O’Neill.
On October 24, 2014 the new full-length album ‘Rebelucionario’ is released, presented at a packed Melkweg. 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, presenting their new album to the Latin American public.
