The Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and music educator Lara Klaus explores different percussion combinations, from drumkit to various African-based instruments, as well as playing guitar and singing. Lara’s compositions are the result of a partnership with Brazilian composers and are mainly influenced by Northeastern Brazilian music, American soul music and Afro-Latin music. The project was born in 2016 and had its first record released in 2018.
