Rebel’rebel: to oppose those in authority who do not act in the best interest of humankind Tumbaotoóm-‘Bah-o: a syncopated bass and conga rhythm that makes you want to groove your ass off
Rebel Tumbao (Rebel Groove) is a family of like minded musician’s deeply committed to creating & performing music packed with groove, consciousness, spirituality, resistance, and positive vibrations with an authentic sound they call “AfroLatinRootsReggae”
This funky fresh earthly sound is the uncompromising fusion of two of the most celebrated musical genres on the planet; Roots Reggae and contemporary Cuban Son – with deep influences of 70’s Soul, Gospel, the Blues, Jazz and African folkloric idioms. At the epicenter of this soundscape are pianist, singer, composer & educator, Matt Jenson and world-renowned percussionist & composer, José Claussell. These partners in musical justice share a profound artistic vision of hope & truth expressed with poetic insights into today’s globalized culture.
Their mind-scope is based on combining Bob Marley’s gospel of love, truth, justice, and economic equality with their mission to inspire all people to be more conscious of the social, economic and ecological impact of their actions. Rebel Tumbao, with their original compositions, awesome arrangements of Marley songs and progressive lyrics, will transport your mind, body and spirit to the healthier world we all know is possible.
