Baque Luar share their love of Afro-Brazilian roots music with a performance and open workshop to learn some of the songs, rhythm and dance from North East Brazil that inspire them.

Baque Luar is a London-based collective of female vocalists and percussionists united by their love of afro-Brazilian roots music. 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 combines original multivocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves. Meaning ’moonlit beat’, Baque Luar is also 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 and a spectacular array of DRUMS, these women will rock you
