United by their love of Afro-Brazilian roots music, this all-female vocal and percussion group will end the first day of the Women in Focus festival with a bang!

Baque Luar are a London-based collective of female vocalists and percussionists, united by their love of Brazilian and afro-Brazilian roots music. Drawing inspiration from the rich soundscapes and traditions of maracatu, coco, bumba meu boi, congado, and ciranda, as well as sacred rhythms of Brazilian candomblé, Baque Luar combine original multi-vocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves.
