Az many of u know, we recently played a showcase in NYC, presented by M2M Studios. Not only was it a rockin' show, but it also marked the beginning of a new chapter in our journey. With new chapters come new happenings, new places, new characters, and new points of view. We're writing this new chapter right now, and in the meantime, we'll be temporarily removing just about all of our material from the web. We know it sounds crazy, but best believe the relaunch will be even bigger & better. So get ready, KUUMBA FREEQUE is comin'...BACK, that is!
In a world of clones, drones, and catchy Pop and Rock bands, there emerges a black sheep hell-bent on disturbing the status quo. It’s name: KUUMBA FREEQUE. The lovechild of Funk and Rock, raised by Soul, the band Kuumba Freeque’s name is a combination of the Swahili term “Kuumba,” meaning creativity, and "Freeque," referring to the relentless pursuit of it.
Formed in 2006 under less than common circumstances, this perfectly imperfect band consists of Singer/Songwriter/Production partners tRESACOBON and K’Monte`. The two come from drastically different musical backgrounds, experiences, and approaches. But the spiritual alignment of the duo allows them to see the beauty in their musical differences and infuse this positive tension into their works. Those fortunate enough to witness any of their studio sessions will attest to their playfully combative style of creating music together. The result: authentic, sensual, beautifully ugly songs that inspire us all to embrace our inner KUUMBA FREEQUE.
