Let Drum Beat

Let Drum Beat are a unique all female band that use their great set of Afro-Brazilian percussion to create energetic and paced rhythms, passing through vocal harmonies, singing in Portuguese, French-Beninese and also using Tupi-Guarani words to celebrate and revive the South-American indigenous culture. The band's connection to their homelands - Brazil, Benin, Scotland, Italy - with their London home makes their music a true voyage of discovery through their roots within a contemporary scenario.

"Let Drum Beat brought their fabulous, ferocious, feel-good vibes onto our podcast, "A World in London". With their mastery, or ms-tery, of their exotic instruments, unique global vision, and Amazonian energy, Let Drum Beat collect & connect the world’s continents in the most colourful kaleidoscope of music!" - DJ Ritu Resonance FM104.1 International Women's Day, 2017.
