"For sheer good times, shows were comprehensively stolen by the all-female masters of rhythm that were LADAMA" — iNews

LADAMA is an all-female band built on rhythm. Comprised of virtuosic musicians, composers, and educators — Lara Klaus, Daniela Serna and Mafer Bandola — LADAMA are sisters in song 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 to create a rich Latin Alternative music, which bends folkloric forms with a modern twist. Their music has been described by NPR as having "irresistible spirit and universal appeal." Experience the power of music as a connective art form at The Nimoy with LADAMA.
