KANBU

KANBU

KANBU, formerly known as Andy Ka & HTO, is a DJ/Producer duo made up of Andy Mendoza del Castillo and Mario Ernesto Arteaga Turiño. They began their project at the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in March 2019, and since then their production has not stopped.

Initially, the goal of the duo was to achieve mixes that only contained parts of the Latin traditions. Samba, trap, Brazilian funk and sounds of Cuban and Afro-Cuban popular music have been an essential part of his art.

However, currently its spectrum is not limited to the aforementioned genres. KANBU also seeks the essence of its product in musical heterogeneity, exploring the journey between two diametrically opposed points: from the serenity of the environment to the aggressiveness of drum and bass.

In recent years they have enjoyed recognition within the scene, after the participation and recognition in the first contest of the Eyeife Festival (2020), as well as the prize in the DJ Producer category within the First Base contest promoted by the Havana World Music Festival (2021).
