Duwende is a six-person a cappella band best known for their fiercely original, bass-and-beatbox-driven funk/pop style of music. In 2011, Duwende released Remember: The Music of Michael Jackson, gaining them widespread acclaim, and leading them to performances for the United Nations, Save The Children Benefit dinner hosted by Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee, Bill Clinton Global Initiative, the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta and a World AIDS Day Event in Amsterdam. With its successful YouTube channel, the band has a growing fan base that circles the globe, and its music and arrangements have been used on TV shows internationally. Duwende consists of J. Aaron Boykin (baritone/tenor), Derrick L. Hicks (tenor), Abbey Janes (soprano), Tomas Cruz (tenor), Edward Chung (vocal percussion) and David Lane (bass). Each member adds their own characteristics and talent to the group, giving them a cappella credibility along with band persona. Duwende is the perfect band to get you dancing, as The Contemporary

A Cappella Society states, "These guys (and gal) know how to make music, and they know how to make their audiences get up on their feet and move. If you're looking for a true a cappella original, you don't have to look any further than Duwende." Duwende's music has made avid fans of tastemakers Jermaine Dupri and Perez Hilton and earned them multiple Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for Best Pop/Rock Album and Best Pop/Rock Original Song. Most recently, they were featured performers on NBC's The Winner Is, hosted by Nick Lachey, and were featured presenters for TED TALK x for Johnson & Johnson.
