Duwende at UA Centennial Hall
October 29, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$15 – $40
Duwende is a six-person a cappella band best known for their fiercely original, bass-and-beatbox-driven funk/pop style of music. In 2011, Duwende released Remember: The Music of Michael Jackson, gaining them widespread acclaim and leading them to performances for the United Nations, Save The Children Benefit dinner, Bill Clinton Global Initiative, the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, and a World AIDS Day Event in Amsterdam. With a successful YouTube channel, the band has a growing fan base that circles the globe, and their music and arrangements have been used on TV shows internationally. Duwende consists of J. Aaron Boykin (baritone/tenor), Derrick L. Hicks (tenor), Abbey Janes (soprano), Tomas Cruz (tenor), Edward Chung (vocal percussion), and David Lane (bass). Each member adds their own characteristics and talent to the group, giving them a cappella credibility along with band persona.
Most recently, they were featured performers on NBC’s The Winner Is with Nick Lachey as host and were featured presenters for TEDx Talks for Johnson & Johnson.
Fun for the whole family! Youth tickets start at $15.
