LADAMA is an ensemble of women musicians from across the Americas who, aside from performing as a touring band, strive to engage the youth in their respective communities in the process of music-making, composition and audio production through collaboration and performance workshops. The musicians are Mafer Bandola (Venezuela), Lara Klaus (Brazil), Daniela Serna (Colombia) and Sara Lucas (U.S.). With rhythm and percussion driving their original compositions that are sung in Spanish, Portuguese and English, they combine disparate, traditional roots music with pop. The result is a sonic experience that encourages the audience to view the future as a world that communicates across continents and cultures, using sound and story.
...a rollicking celebration of rhythmic give-and-take. Lithe melodies twist around cacophonous percussion, four voices harmonizing in joyous bursts.” – WBUR
