LADAMA is a group of four women, virtuosic musicians, composers, and educators— Lara Klaus, Daniela Serna, Mafer Bandola and Sara Lucas— from different countries and cultures of the Americas, who are sisters in song, rhythm and spirit. Harnessing music from their respective countries of origin, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and the United States, the group utilizes traditional and non-traditional instruments from across the Americas, but with a modern twist to write and produce Latin Alternative music. Joined by their musical collaborator, bassist Pat Swoboda, they released their self-titled debut album in 2017 and their follow-up album, Oye Mujer, in 2020, on Six Degrees Records. LADAMA has performed at NPR Tiny Desk, TED, the Skoll World Forum, on ESPN, and at dozens of prestigious venues and festivals around the world. In a feature on their music, NPR's All Things Considered praised LADAMA's "irresistible spirit and universal appeal.”
