Dende band picThis is a 9-piece band with deep melodic horn harmonies and funky Afro-Latin percussion section playing upbeat positive tropical party music. They play everything from Columbian Cumbias, to Calypso, Reggae and Afro Latin grooves with even a sneaky bit of drum and bass and psychedelia in the mix.  Up front there’s the flamboyant Ali Jane on vocals and accordion and they never fail to get the place jumping.
Here’s a little sneak preview… Dende playing this classic Calypso tune with their own little samba reggae dub slant on it all. Enjoy x

And this one is an old-school Columbian Cumbia inna Dende Stylee.

This is an original Dende tune asking: When, oh when will you truly love me? Ah the pain of it all! Dubby Spanish feel with a little live drum and bass in the mix.
