Much like the tree that forms their name (“quye” means tree in the indigenous language Chibcha), Brooklyn four-piece KUYE has deep roots. Originally from Bogota, Colombia and the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, the members of KUYE meld African and Colombian folkloric music with funk, Spanish rock and hip-hop resulting in a psychedelic, polyrhythmic alchemy. With their poetic lyrics and genre-defying sound, KUYE’s modern roots music has the same unexpected energy as NYC.
