Description: Duwende (Doo-WEN-day) is a six-person a capella group based out of New York. Each member of the group adds their own characteristics and talent to the group, giving them the "a cappella" creditability along with the "band" persona. The band is best known for its fiercely original, bass-and-beatbox-driven funk/pop style of music and have headlined major a capella festivals such as the East Coast Summit, SoJam, and AcappellaStock.
Duwende just released a Michael Jackson tribute album titled Remember: The Music Of Michael Jackson, which contains covers of some of his biggest hits, including "Billie Jean," "Black or White" and "Rock With You." The members of Duwende, who cite MJ as their biggest inspiration, put their own original spin on his classic songs, showcasing the band's versatility and creativity. The collection is the band's first cover album.
