So much news, we hardly know where to begin!!
With theÂ release of our new video and singleÂ â€˜Nada Te Pidoâ€™, we hereby give you the very first preview of our upcoming EP â€˜A Casa Tierraâ€™! We’ve been working on this EP for several months in the deepest of secrets (not really, but it just sounds cooler), and we’re now very proud to announce that it will be officially presented on April 18thÂ at music venue Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. But wait.. there’s more! Before the EP launch we will first embark on a journey we’ve been dreaming of since the band got started: on March 6th we’re crossing the ocean to go on tour in Chile!
The video of â€˜Nada Te Pidoâ€™ is the result of many hours of handicraft, built up from hand-painted illustrations, clippings and photography by our own guitarist Jouke Schwarz. The illustrations are based on old video footage shot during some of our live shows, and the final montage was done by Maarten Rots.
On tour in Chile
2012 has been a very good year for us with performances at large festivals like Dunya, Mundial and Oerol and tours through Germany, France and Spain. In just a week from nowÂ we’re going on our third tour abroad, but this time to beautiful Chile to explore our musical roots in the motherland of our frontman Maurino. As you may know, this year it is also exactly 40 years since the coup against Salvador Allende, causing the parents of Maurino to flee the country and settle here in The Netherlands. For us, and our music, this has been an important historical event, shaping the identity of what has eventually become TenTemPiÃ©s.
â€˜A Casa Tierraâ€™
Upon our return in Amsterdam, we will present our new EP â€˜A Casa Tierraâ€™ on April 18th in music venue Bitterzoet.Â The EP was recorded and mixed by Dougal Hallowes and Maurino, for the mastering we turned to Andrew Baldwin (The Who, The Orb, Hidden Orchestra) at the famous Metropolis Studios in London. We can’t wait to let you hear the whole EP, but for now let’s start with ‘Nada Te Pido’!

Today we proudly present our new single ‘Que Sera’! With this second and last single of our debut album ‘Canto Para Gritar’ (2011) we mark the end of a great and busy year filled with club shows, festivals, two international tours, and the exciting prospect of a new release planned for early 2013. The video for ‘Que Sera’ was recorded last summer on the tiny but beautiful island of Terschelling during Oerol festival. And to top it off, Perquisite has made an official remix of the single, downloadable for free!
As we really love festivals we’ve chosen Oerol as the scenario for the new video. Dynamic duo Ruben Wiegerinck and Derek van Egmond, who were also responsible for ‘Leon‘, shot the video last June on a nice summer’s day at Terschelling. A big thanks go out to them and to everyone that participated in the video, spending a beautifulÂ day together with us! View the result below:
Together with the single and video we also present the official remix made by our friend and great Dutch producer Perquisite. After working together with Maurino on his single ‘Me Despido‘ (Unexpected Records, 2011), Perquisite took ‘Que Sera’ and composed his own unique interpretation, blending traditional South-American/Andean sounds with his own distinctive musical style. Enjoy and download Perquisite’s remix for free below:
Before our concert at Uitmarkt last August we were interviewed for the ‘Latinos En Holanda‘ series, a program aimed towards the latin community in The Netherlands which alsoÂ includes interviews withÂ bands such as Calle 13 and Chico Trujillo. In this interview we talk a bit about the history of TenTemPiÃ©s, the meaning of the band’s name, our experiences as a Latin-Dutch band, our current plans etc.. Watch the video below:
On October 18th we’ll hop in our van again and head south, kicking off the ‘Al Sur Tur’ with a show in Villeneuve d’Ascq together with French reggae rock bandÂ La Familya. From there we head out for a loooooong drive to Spain to play at the beach of GandÃa (in Mala Vida) and after that at the recently openedÂ Belushi’s location in the middle of downtown Barcelona, also one of our sponsors this tour. After that we travel north again to play a show at Luzeret, France before heading back to Amsterdam. Catch all the dates below, and if you happen to be nearby we hope to see you at one of the shows!

If you’ve visited our last couple of shows you might have noticed that we didn’t bring any CD’s along. That’s because, a year after releasing Canto Para Gritar, they were completely sold out! Now the album is back in stock and available again for just â‚¬10 + shipping. Head over to our web shopÂ to get your copy! Or just visit our next show;)
TIP: if you subscribe to our newsletter (in the sidebar) today you get the chance to receive a 50% discount on the album! More details can be found in the upcoming newsletter, where we will also give you an insight into our plans for the near future.
After our first time playing at the Uitmarkt in 2011 we got invited back this year for another show. On August 24th we were the opening act at Museumplein in Amsterdam, marking the start of the new cultural season. We only had 30 minutes for the showcase but we had a great time, lucky to have played before it really started raining.
Het Parool made a nice mention of our performance, NTR filmed the show for Uitmarkt TV and interviewed us afterwards. View the video here:
