Overview

As contemporary Tambú music and dance evolved on the Caribbean island of
Curaçao, it intertwined sacred and secular, private and public cultural practices, and many
traditions from Africa and the New World. As she explores the formal contours of Tambú, Nanette
de Jong discovers its variegated history and uncovers its multiple and even contradictory origins.
De Jong recounts the personal stories and experiences of Afro-Curaçaoans as they perform
Tambu–some who complain of its violence and low-class attraction and others who champion
Tambú as a powerful tool of collective memory as well as a way to imagine the future.
