Gato Preto has become one of the most vibrant and extravagant, contemporary African musical outfits. Fusing music and culture from Mozambique to Germany, Ghana to Senegal, this group will have you rethinking everything you think you know about African music. This afrofuturistic live act "doesn't just put on a show; it makes a scene" NPR 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 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.
