Where the light and exotic charm of Brazilian music meets the rhythmic tension of flamenco, there arises a space in which the two of us, Matama, move. Guitar, voice and percussion form an equal and complex unit of music. Searching for new forms of sounds as well as moving between different ethnic styles characterises the art of Matama. This music takes its listener on a journey where influences of various cultures and the those of various musical characters melt into a rich, exciting performance.
