BIO

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.

 
 

'CAPITAL LETTERS DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO HOW MUCH I LOVE BAQUE LUAR!' - Sam Lee, Nest Collective

'Baque Luar are an outstanding live act, with a depth of knowledge and respect for their artform that is clear for any observer to see. Their live show is captivating and overflows with an energy, percussive flair and cohesive vocal arrangements & performance like no other group I have seen. They were an absolute stand out act in the programme of Glasgow’s Encontro Street Band Festival 2019. In addition to a series of blistering live shows, they ran high quality workshops that were accessible, well taught and fun. I would book them again in a heartbeat.' -Olivia Furness – Director, the Encontro Street Band Festival

'Saw this wonderful group last night at Jago (Passing Clouds) and they blew the roof off the joint. Go and see them. And if you have already seen them, go see them again! I’ll be looking for them the next time I’m in the UK.'  - Rick Campbell
