Brazilian Rhythm & Song

Baque Luar are a London-based collective of female percussionists and vocalists, united by their love of afro-Brazilian roots music.

Presenting a concert of Brazilian Rhythm & Song from a powerful women’s collective.

Fri 27 April 2018, 7:30pm

Meaning “moonlit beat”, Baque Luar is an ongoing exploration of female rhythmic creativity, engaging critically with gender imbalances in drumming traditions worldwide as well as the music industry at large. With a unique mixture of intricate arrangements, vocal harmonies, body percussion and a spectacular array of drums, these women are guaranteed to inspire.

Drawing inspiration from the rich soundscapes and traditions of maracatu, coco, bumba meu boi, tambores de Minas, and ciranda, as well as sacred rhythms of Brazilian candomblé, Baque Luar combine original multi-vocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves.
