LADAMA Podcast 228

Play

We get to hang at home with LADAMA!  We recorded some songs and chat with  Mafer Bandola (bandola llanera), Lara Klaus (percussion, drums), Daniela Serna (percussion)  Sara Lucas (voice, guitar) and Pat Swoboda (bass).  

LADAMA is an ensemble of women musicians (joined by Pat for this session) who combine the rhythms and traditional instrumentation of frevo and maracatu from Pernambuco, Brazil;  joropo songs from the high plains of Venezuela; cumbia, gaita and champeta from the Colombian coast and contemporary strains of American pop and jazz.

Ladama Project em Recife – Retratos

Members of LADAMA specialize in, among other instruments, the bandola llanera from Venezuela, the tambor alegre from Colombia, and the pandeiro and zabumba from Northeast Brazil. Their performances include original compositions and traditional songs sung in Spanish, Portuguese and English combining disparate elements into a cohesive whole. The result is a sonic experience through which we can view our future as a world that communicates across continents and cultures, with sound and story.
