Yakumbé – Percussion Collective

Yakumbé is a percussion collective who is combining singing with rhythms from all over the world and the result is an unique experience!

Their first album, Yakumbé, was released in 2015 and summarizes the musical exploration of the group throughout its first 23 years. Now, during the creation of the second album, they have put focus on examining Swedish folkmusic and what happens when different traditions of folkmusic are put together and intertwine.

Yakumbé has a strong experience of playing for all kinds of audiences. After a tour of highly applauded concerts for children and youths under direction of Musik i Sörmland in 2016/2017 the repertoire has now been expanded with new material ready to be shown to the world!
