Line up

  • Siba Carvalho (voice, percussion)


I am an indigenous woman from the Puri people, a people who have a very percussive musical peculiarity for having had much contact with black people, so in the musicality of my people, the percussive sounds of bamboo, the viola of taquara, for example, are very present. Besides carrying this influence in my essence, I started playing Maracatu when I was a child, and I have been entering this universe of drums more and more. My work with percussion has been more marked by the rhythms of Pernambuco and Reggae.

The compositions I make come mostly through dreams and psychography. For my people spirituality is not distant from art and existence as a being, it is all one thing, so this subjective and unconscious world is very accessible to us.

In my work, I bring together spirituality and social issues, which is why I have this strong influence from Reggae and Rap, two styles that point to the distorted reality in which humanity lives.

I work as a singer, percussionist, and composer. I also teach guitar for beginners and give bongo lessons, the instrument that is the main focus of my percussive study.
