„What more could you want“ (The Independent, UK)
Forget Samba for a moment. Just forget all the clichés you know about Brazil. The Berne based group DA CRUZ take you to a different place: modern and urban Brazil, a country staggering between revolution and resignation. Da Cruz have translated all the anger and joy, all the hope and despair into extremely danceable songs.
Born and raised in Sao Paulo, singer Mariana Da Cruz moved to Switzerland ten years ago and has gained an excellent reputation in the global music scene. This is even more remarkable, as Da Cruz has remained an independent artist since its beginnings. Every Da Cruz record has been produced in their own studio and released on their label - except for the 2011 album "Sistema Subversiva", (Six Degrees Records).
"Da Cruz is the collision of various elements that seem incompatible at first glance," explains Mariana Da Cruz. Mariana’s background is traditional Brazilian music, while her musical companion Ane H., scraped his soul with Suicide, danced to Fela Kuti, and was the singer of the industrial pioneers Swamp Terrorists.
