Kuumba Freeque / Bio

In a world of clones, drones and catchy Pop and Rock bands, there emerges a black sheep hell-bent on disturbing the status quo. It’s name: KUUMBA FREEQUE. The lovechild of Funk and Rock, raised by Soul, the band Kuumba Freeque’s name is a combination of the Swahili term “Kuumba,” meaning creativity, and "Freeque," referring to the relentless pursuit of it. Formed in 2006 under less than common circumstances, this perfectly imperfect band consists of Singer/Songwriter/Production partners tRESA jERELL and K’Monte`. The two come from drastically different musical backgrounds, experiences, and approaches. But the spiritual alignment of the duo allows them to see the beauty in their musical differences and infuse this positive tension into their works. Those fortunate enough to witness any of their studio sessions will attest to their playfully combative style of creating music together. The result: authentic, sensual, beautifully ugly songs that inspire us all to embrace our inner KUUMBA FREEQUE.
