A trio that creates fusion dance/music performances. Instrumental music, sound landscapes, movement and contemporary dance develop imagination, something they want to empower their audiences with. TAKATUM´s performances are specially thought for children, but built for all ages, because everyone fits in a “young audience” label.
Original compositions that travel through different paths and styles, creating dances and stories where you can recognize some traditional folk rhythms from Portugal, Brazil, Angola, as well as contemporary music and the creation of sound effects in a combination of acoustic and electronic sounds.
