Show run time: Approximately 60 - 70 minutes, no intermission. 

LADAMA is a group of three virtuosic musicians and educators from different countries and cultures of the Americas who are sisters in song, rhythm, and spirit. As LADAMA, Lara Klaus, Daniela Serna, and Mafer Bandola harness music from their respective countries of origin (Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela), utilizing traditional and non-traditional instruments from across the Americas with a modern twist to produce Latin Alternative music. Reimagining South American and Caribbean styles like cumbia, maracatu, onda nueva, and joropo and blending them with soul, R&B, and pop, LADAMA has created a new sound all their own.

Klaus, Serna and Bandola share a common dream of building communities through sound and empowering women and youth through music. LADAMA delivers an utterly unique experience as they flow from the electric to the acoustic, from Spanish to English and Portuguese, and from the high plains of Venezuela to the Colombian coast. Their art proves that borders are meaningless, transporting us to a future where the world communicates across continents and cultures through sound and story.

"LADAMA takes on traditional genres with confidence and vigor without being constrained by their conventions. The result is a vivid montage of music of the Americas with irresistible spirit and universal appeal.” — NPR
