With a sound that effortlessly bridges the gap between Berlin and the east coast of South America, these nine female musicians provide the right atmosphere for the World Cup: Vocal diversity and a large battery of percussion instruments consisting of Gongue bells, Alfaia base drums, Ganza rattles, Calabashes and more, evoking the rhythms of north-eastern Brazil.

With DJ Grace Kelly on board these “Queens” of the traditional beats and the antiphony of the Maracatú from the Carnaval do Recife mix it up with contemporary sounds from Berlin.
