People's Champs
People's Champs
People’s Champs play music for the mind, body and soul. Enamored and obsessed with roots dance music from all over the world, they mix jazz, hip-hop, rock and soul from the USA, Latin America and Africa to create new hybrids. The result is a passionate sound that will move you. Literally. Led by trombonist/vocalist Alex Asher, People’s Champs feature some of New York’s top musicians, who also perform regularly with Baja and Dry Eye Crew, Slavic Soul Party!, Meta and the Cornerstones, The Superpowers, Baye Kouyate, Jo Jo Kuo and his Afrobeat Collective, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Larkin Grimm, The Rex Complex, Cuddle Magic, Afrodesia, Nation Beat and many others. Please come hear them at a Bar, Club, Library, Farmer’s Market, Loft Party, School or Swimming Pool near YOU.
LADAMA is a music ensemble comprised of five women from across the Americas who strive to engage youth and women in the process of music-making, sound design, composition and audio production. They aim to address gender inequality and unequal representation of women in all aspects of music education, industry and business.
As musicians, they collaborate to create original compositions, drawing from traditional elements such as joropo, cumbia, bullerengue, maracatu and others - bringing together these disparate elements while writing non-traditional music. LADAMA has toured across both South and North America.
With Maria Fernanda Gonzales (Venezuela) bandola; Lara Klaus (Brazil) percussion; Daniela Serna (Colombia) percussion; Sara Lucas (U.S.) guitar
