Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with an extraordinary performance by the “Female Latin
Powerhouse group LADAMA” (LA Weekly). This fresh and vibrant quartet innovates “Latin
Alternative” music, seamlessly shifting instrumentation between bandola llanera (a mandolin
relative), guitar, voice, and various percussion instruments. Each of these talented women, Lara
Klaus, Daniela Serna, Mafer Bandola, and Sara Lucas, are musical and social trailblazers, hailing
from across the Americas—Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, and the United States. Their unique
and energetic sound is not easily categorized: it effortlessly glides from electric to acoustic,
from Spanish to English to Portuguese, and blends South American and Caribbean styles such as
cumbia, coco, maracatu, onda nueva and joropo with soul, R&B, and pop. “The result is a vivid
montage of music of the Americas with irresistible spirit and universal appeal,” (NPR).
