The Grand Final Tumba Contest is an important music competition and an official event in Aruba's Carnival.
Originally from Africa with a Caribbean influence, the Tumba music played during the Carnival has the rhythm of the “tambu” which is a tambour with a 6/8 beat. This event features local bands and singers competing for the Tumba King or Queen title with their original musical compositions and lyrics.
