KiT (Kuenta i Tambu)kit-sxsw-2014

If you’re looking to do some serious wining at SXSW, look no further than any of the five showcases featuring Dutch/Caribbean group KiT (Kuenta i Tambu). One of our 21 artists to watch for 2014, KiT marries traditional Afro-Caribbean drumming from Curaรงao with sounds from contemporary global electronic music. Basically, irresistible dance musicโ€”live drums and vocals, a DJ, and a whole lot of energy. Check them out at Red 7 and Bar 96 on Wednesday, Speakeasy on Friday, and with Taj Weekes at Russian House on Saturday. Just make sure you don’t jackhammer!โ€”Natalie Weiner
