Latin girl group LADAMA has just released their brilliant self-titled debut album.
Featuring 10 energetic, sonically gorgeous and colorful tracks, LADAMA is an album that unites and empowers. With tracks sung in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, it is a transporting musical journey that, like the band's members, finds its origins across the Americas. The merging of electric arrangements with the traditional rhythms of South American and Caribbean styles; instruments like the bandola llanera from Venezuela, the tambor alegre from Colombia, and the pandeiro and zabumba from northeastern Brazil; and the modern sounds of pop, soul, and R&B results in one riveting, dynamic flavor that transcends borders.
LADAMA opens with the group's vibrant and joyful first single "Porro Maracatu" (watch the official music video here) and ends with the percussion-driven "Atravessadora." Each track in between, especially "Confesión," a love letter that speaks to self-actualization and womanhood, touches every corner of the soul, provoking introspection and a range of emotions.
Shattering both gender and cultural barriers, LADAMA is working to address gender inequality and unequal representation of women while encouraging the world to build community through music. The quartet officially launched their debut album to a sold-out house on September 7 at New York City's Rockwood Music Hall and they are currently on a promotional tour throughout the U.S. Dates below:
