“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
Today our winter club tour kicks off with the first show in Grounds, Rotterdam! Check out all the dates, ticket info and latest updates here.
One very special gig during the tour is our show at showcase festival Noorderslag. Tickets for the festival are sold out but if you have yours, make sure you have a spot in De Foyer Grote Zaal towards the end of the festival.
It’s already been two months since we released our album ‘Rebelucionario‘, but the memories from the big release party at Amsterdam’s pop temple Melkweg are still fresh in our minds. Mette van der Linden (MOC Video) made a video report of what was to us an unforgettable night! Watch it here:
Last week we were invited once again to Jaap Brienen’s show on Radio 6 Eerst Jaap! We announced the great news we received the day before: that we are going to be the closing act at Eurosonic Noorderslag on January 17th! Of course we played some live tunes in the studio including a Zwarte Lijst cover of “Hey Ya!” from Outkast. Check it out below!
TenTemPiés is an international collective of musicians based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Their music is a powerful and innovative blend of flavours, mixing Latin Rock with Reggae and Ska with an Amsterdam twist: Damsko Mestizo!
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. Maurino’s parents, both Chilean, fled from the coup d’etat by the Pinochet regime and arrived in The Netherlands as political refugees in 1973. Growing up in Amsterdam, he is nevertheless strongly influenced by music and art inspired by progressive artists from Chile and Latin America, like Victor Jara, Quilapayun, Inti-Illimani and Silvio Rodriguez.
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. Since the release of their well-received debut album ‘Canto Para Gritar’ (2011), TenTemPiés has been on the road almost non-stop. After their club tour an extensive festival season follows in 2012 as well as shows 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 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, produced by Dutch reggae icon Pieter Both (BEEF!). With this latest project TenTemPiés is fully focused to bring their music and message even further, from The Netherlands to Europe and beyond.
