On the back of acclaim for their debut album Brilha, Baque Luar play their first London show of 2024 as part of Movimientos and La Linea collaboration.
Baque Luar, a collective of female and non-binary vocalists and percussionists hailing from diverse backgrounds, are united by their love of Brazilian and Afro Brazilian roots music. Meaning ’moonlit beat’, the group combines original multivocal compositions and arrangements with powerful percussive grooves. This unique mixture has led to acclaimed live performances across the UK, including The Great Escape, Shambala and Medicine festivals, the Southbank Centre and a Boiler Room performance organised by DJ and broadcaster Zakia Sewell.
Brilha, their recently released debut album, is a work of praise for this earth and for the human and beyond-human connections which nourish us. It features a collaboration with Maracatu Leão Coroado (the oldest maracatu nation in the world), amongst an array of powerful original tracks. Singles already released from the album include Full Rivers Oxum, Brilha and Arranjo, which have received over 70,000 streams globally.
