Tambor y Caña is a group composed of Venezuelan musicians with a long career, dedicated to project and combine Afro-Venezuelan music with different styles of music. This band born as a percussion ensemble on May 28, 2017, under the initiative of Willie Quintana and Daniel Prim. After a few months, other talented musicians have joined this project creating a new sound and spreading to the public the different rhythms of Afro-Venezuelan Music.
The name Tambor y Caña originates from the combination of 2 words: Tambor referring to the Afro-Venezuelan Drum, and Caña comes from the Spanish expression: “dale caña” which refers to giving strength or intensity to something. That strength, that energy is what characterizes this group in each of its presentations.
The repertoire includes pieces of Venezuelan folklore with compositions and arrangements of the group using some rhythms or drum beats native to some towns of the Venezuelan Coast such as: Chuao, Choroní, Cumboto (Aragua State), San Millan (Carabobo State), Caraballeda ( Estado Vargas) among other rhythms accompanied by “Sirenas” that are acapella songs and “Sangueos” rhythms that are played in honor to San Juan Bautista.
