Duwende is a six part a cappella group from New York that have been making waves (is that how you say it in cool?). Well they’ve now released their latest album, Collective, on free download from their site, which is both extremely generous and very intelligent from a marketing point of view. Nice to see stuff like this filtering out into the indie music business, I hope it works out well for them.
In the 2002 Independent Music World Series, the editors of Billboard Magazine chose Duwende as one of the “Top 6 Indie Acts in the Northeast.” In early 2005 they were seen by millions of viewers in a television ad for the cable operator consortium 1.800.OKCable. Their music has received critical acclaim from various reviewers in print and online, and in 2005 their album “Radio Screaming” was awarded Best Pop/Rock Album and Best Pop/Rock Original Song by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America.
