Biography

TenTemPiés is an international collective of musicians based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Their music is an innovative and exciting blend of flavours, mixing Latin rock with ska and reggae with an Amsterdam twist: Damsko Mestizo! Formed during the summer of 2008, TenTemPiés has by now performed its energetic and inspiring live shows at an impressive number of venues.

Written by frontman Maurino Alarcón, their characteristic music is inspired by political issues and social injustice worldwide. Maurino’s parents, both Chilean, fled from the coup d’etat by the Pinochet regime and arrived in The Netherlands as political refugees in 1973. Growing up in Amsterdam, he is nevertheless strongly influenced by music and art inspired by the political ideals of left wing artists from Chile and Latin America, like Victor Jara, Quilapayun, Inti-Illimani and Silvio Rodriguez.

In 2009 TenTemPiés entered the band competition called ‘Amsterdamse Popprijs’ in which they made it to the finals. That same year, TenTemPiés published its first demo EP, which sold out within a year at the live shows. Exactly a year later, in March 2010, a second EP called ‘Por Ahora’ followed. A limited edition of this EP was pressed and sold to collect money for the victims of the earthquake that hit Chili in February 2010.
