Yakumo combines organic African rhythms with driving techno beats. After many years of playing in bands, the duo developed an extensive live approach to electronic music. Their tracks are produced live on stage with analogue synthesizers, effect pedals and a mixing desk. Slowly layering deep basses with flute melodies and marimba loops, Yakumo builds towards a tropical hypnosis.
Yakumo made their debut at Amsterdam Dance Event in 2014. This summer, they have played at festivals like Smeerboel, Welcome to the Village, Oerol and Damaris. Later this year, Yakumo will join the traveling festival Popronde, for which 3voor12 named them as one of the most talented acts.
