“Doesn’t just put on a show; it make a scene” NPR music

Gato Preto is one of the most vibrant and extravagant, contemporary African musical outfit on the global scene. Fusing music and culture from Mozambique to Germany, Ghana to Senegal, this group re- thinks everything you think you know about African music. The band built their name through stunning high energetic live performances – they combine Electronic Beats with powerful live percussions and the intense vocal prowess of MC Gata Misteriosa. Their stage outfits, dancers, visuals and contagious rhythms make up an electric live show that nobody could ever forget. 

The music of Gato Preto is a furious blend of the essence of “Favela Funk” from Rio, “Township Grooves” from South Africa and “Hybrid Tech” Kuduro from Angola. Half Ghanaian and German producer Lee Bass creates the basis for MC Gata Misteriosa and her portuguese power-punchlines, mixing her Lisbon upbringing and Mozambican roots in a European-African explosion of music unlike any other. Their high-energy performances have been causing a stir across their festival appearances, with huge appearance as GlobalFest,  Eurosonic Noorderslag & Glastonbury. 

An essential  night of fiery rhythms and heavy beats for any world electronic music fan. 

“Their set had a steamy carnival energy, with the relentless drive of the machine-made pulse amplified by heart-quickening flurries of live drumming.” The New York Times
