LADAMA is a group of four women, virtuosic musicians, and educators - each from a different country and culture of the Americas, who are sisters in song, rhythm and spirit.
Harnessing music from their respective countries of origin —Brazil (Lara Klaus), Colombia (Daniela Serna), Venezuela (Mafer Bandola) and the United States (Sara Lucas), the group utilizes traditional and non-traditional instruments from across the Americas, but with a modern twist, to produce Latin Alternative music.
With powerful vocals LADAMA delivers an utterly unique musical experience which flows from the electric to the acoustic, from Spanish to English and Portuguese, and from the high plains of Venezuela to the Colombian coast. Reimagining South American and Caribbean styles like cumbia, maracatu, onda nueva and joropo and blending them with soul, R&B and pop, LADAMA creates a new sound all their own.
Together, the four shred on the Bandola Llanera from Venezuela, the Tambor Alegre from Colombia, and the Pandeiro from Northeastern Brazil.
Their art proves that borders are meaningless, transporting us to a future where the world communicates across continents and cultures, through sound and story.
