Project Description

Oruba, a new project who’s making his debut on the Caribbean Jazz Festival with young talented musicians Aruba has cultivated in the last 30 years.

Reno Steba, who is living in The Netherlands and has worked and toured with many well-known artists in Europe and abroad, is the founder of this group and intends to  expose our musical talents around the world.

The music reflects the native rhythms of the island, sung in Papiamento and colored with jazz harmonies, will bring you the flavor of modern progressive Aruban music. The music contains elements of jazz, tumba, tambu, gaita and gnaoua music (native Moroccan music) which bare the same rhythmical 6/8 patterns that our local music use. Oruba will be shooting his first live video clip on the festival, so come and support our local talents.
