Tutti Frutti stands for a musical group from Bonaire and consists of 18 singers/musicians.
All members belong to several excisting local musical groups, reason why the group is called “Tutti Frutti”.
Tutti Frutti has a variety of songs from religious to popular songs. This musical group was formed by ideas originating from six Bonairian Ladies, all relatives of each other. This group did perform in churches, famous local hotels and restaurants and last but not least on “Freewinds”.
In early 1994 Tutti Frutti initiated their performance with local cultural songs. They are a local group from Rincon, located on the Northern side of Bonaire. Rinconese people try to maintain their culture alive on a very special way. It should be mentioned that the “Rincon Day” is being organized on the 30th of April for almost 20 years already.

In 2002 Tutti Frutti issued their 2nd CD “Kas di bara”, and became therefore very popular with the song “Rekuerdo chistoso”.
