Kuenta i Tambu— KiT for short—caught our attention this spring with “Jackhammer,” which set a diatribe against bad dancing from vocalist Diamanta von Lieschdeck against the fusion of Dutch Caribbean rhythms and electronic sounds they’ve dubbed “Tambutronic.” The group—which is based in Amsterdam, but has its roots in Curacao— just dropped their debut LP, also called Tambutronic, this month, and plan to tour globally later this year following successful appearances at NYC’s Globalfest, Aruba’s Caribbean Sea Jazz fest and other festival gigs.
