Event description

Description

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, congado and ciranda, as well as sacred rhythms of Brazilian candomblé, Baque Luar combines original multi-vocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves.

A 30-40 minute performance by Baque Luar will be followed by refreshments and an informal round-table discussion addressing themes such as:

- the gendering of musical instruments and genres

- sexism in the music industry

- female-only creative spaces
