Center Stage Series continues Feb. 9

‘LADAMA: Sisters in song, rhythm and spirit

The Luther College Center Stage presents “LADAMA” Thursday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m., in the Main Hall of the Center for Faith and Life on the Luther campus. 
LADAMA is a group of four women who are exceptional musicians and educators, all from different countries. Lara Klaus from Recife, Brazil; Daniela Serna from Bogota, Colombia; Maria Fernanda Gonzalez from Barquisimeto, Venezuela; and Sara Lucas from the United States draw musical inspiration from their home countries and cultures.
Self-described “sisters in song, rhythm and spirit,” they are on a quest to discover musical and cultural intersections, transcend boundaries and defy norms using traditional and non-traditional instruments from across the Americas.
“This will be such a wonderful evening of music. I love LADAMA’s quintessential Latin rhythms, their powerful camaraderie on stage, and their mission as musicians — to bridge the gap between cultures,” said Kristen Underwood, director of campus programming. 
LADAMA takes on traditional genres with confidence and vigor without being constrained by their conventions. The result is a vivid montage of music of the Americas with irresistible spirit and universal appeal.” – All Things Considered, NPR.
