Description
Atanga  Boom  was  founded  in  2012  by  six  musicians  with  a  common  passion  for  groove,  powerjazz  and  
worldmusic.  Before  that,  the  individual  members  built  their  stage  experience  performing  alongside  Jose  
James,  Joseph  Bowie,  Caro  Emerald,  Monsieur  Dubois,  Bernie’s  Lounge  and  The  Shuffle  Demons.  This  new  
group  immediately  caught  the  attention  of  the  Dutch  scene,  being  welcomed  by  such  venues  as  the  
Paradiso,  the  North  Sea  Jazz  Club  and  Jazz  in  Duketown.  
 
The  sound  of  Atanga  Boom  is  defined  by  the  presence  of  the  tuba  and  the  baritone  saxophone.  Two  wind  
instruments  covering  the  lowest  register,  battling  the  forces  of  drums  and  percussion,  with  sparkling  
effects  from  the  guitar  and  keys,  supplying  everything  with  both  raw  and  sophisticated  sounds.  In  
between  all  the  instrumental  violence,  vocal  intermissions  are  served  by  percussion  player  and  singer  
Helene  Jank.  
 
All  Atanga  Boom  bandmembers  contribute  to  the  material  as  composer.  Some  of  them  also  write  music  in  
the  field  of  theatre,  dance  and  film,  scoring  for  The  Scapino  Ballet,  “The  Hitchcock  9”  project  produced  by  
the  EYE  institute  or  the  short  movie  “Ciel”  screened  at  the  Cannes  filmfestival.
