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.

Perotá Chingó

Argentinian band Perotá Chingó is a project in constant transformation that today embarks on a new musical and conceptual chapter. Now the band is extending the boundaries of its acoustic style, interweaving folklore, the ancestral evocation of voices and the technological power of electronic beats. Having been touring the world for the best part of the last decade, they now bring their full live show to London’s Rich Mix for their UK debut.
