Yakumbé is a Swedish group that uses percussion and voices as a means of expression. The band uses the varied kultural influences that exist in Sweden and the world to get inspired and make their music.
Yakumbé was formed in 1993 by a group of youngsters who wanted to do something to make sense of their free time. They played Candombe and different rhythms of Brazil. Yakumbé began soon to mixing the musical influences that each member had with their rhythms. That became the fundamentals of Yakumbé.
The band recorded their first album in 2015, where their intention was to make a compilation of the musik that they had plaid over the years.
On March 23 they released their second album "Rinkebysvängen". It´s an album primarily inspired by Scandinavian folklore. Yakumbé gave them selves the necessary time to find comon denominatores between the genre and their percussion, so that the micelànea would sounded natural.
