LADAMA is an ensemble of women musicians from across the Americas: Mafer Bandola of Venezuela, Lara Klaus of Brazil, Daniela Serna of Colombia, and Sara Lucas of the United States. With rhythm and percussion driving their original compositions sung in Spanish, Portuguese, and English, they combine disparate, traditional roots music with pop. The result is a sonic experience through which we can view our future as a world that communicates across continents and cultures, with sound and story. Along with performing as a touring band, the group strives to engage youth in their respective communities in the process of music-making, composition and audio production through collaboration and performance workshops. LADAMA has released two albums: their self-titled debut album in 2017 and Oye Mujer in 2020 on Six Degrees Records.
