LADAMA is a group of four women, virtuosic musicians, and educators -- Lara Klaus, Daniela Serna, Mafer Bandola and Sara Lucas—each from a different country and culture of the Americas, who are sisters in song, rhythm and spirit. Harnessing music from their respective countries of origin --Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and the United States, the group utilizes traditional and non-traditional instruments from across the Americas, but with a modern twist, to produce Latin Alternative music.
Singing in Spanish, Portuguese and English, LADAMA brings a vibrant, energizing and utterly danceable musical. Come learn and experience how cross-cultural musical collaboration can empower communities.
