Baque Luar is a London-based collective of female and non-binary vocalists and percussionists from diverse backgrounds, united by their love of Brazilian and Afro-Brazilian roots music. Their music focuses on honouring feminine power and creativity, acknowledging struggles against oppression and praising nature at this critical ecological moment.
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 feminine 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, dance, movement and a spectacular array of DRUMS, Baque Luar will rock you.
Inês Loubet is considered to be one of London’s most exciting vocalists/multi-instrumentalists and her original compositions navigate through the influences of Jazz, latin-grooves and her native language, Portuguese. Loubet’s musical ventures have been praised by the likes of Gilles Peterson and The Line of Best Fit, as well as earned her several international tours, radio appearances at Jazz Fm, Worldwide FM & BBC Radio 3, and performances at The Union Chapel, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire & BBC Late Proms.
Queen Kong is a deejay hailing from SE London, known for tearing up dance floors on both sides of the river. Playing everything from samba to disco to dirty drum & bass, Queen Kong's selections are eclectic and always heavily groove-based with fat basslines and rhythms that will make you want to dance.
