LADAMA – MISTERIO (SINGLE)
ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Release Date: June 5th, 2020
South American and United States-based collective LADAMA release an urgent declaration to women across the globe with its electrifying sophomore studio album, OYE MUJER. The four women of LADAMA along with their longtime musical collaborator New York-based bassist Pat Swoboda and renowned Brazilian producer Kassin (Jorge Ben, Bebel Gilberto, Caetano Veloso) collaborate on a rapturous collection of 10 progressive anthems sung in Spanish, Portuguese and English.
Driven by samba reggae/reggaeton/bolero rhythms, Daniela Serna comments on the poignant message of their song “Misterio”: “‘Misterio’ celebrates the idea of reconciling ourselves with our bodies, loving them, and feeling free. To enjoy your own body is a revolutionary act – an act of self-care. Female sexuality can no longer be a taboo, and women around the world are raising their voices and embracing their bodies as proof of this. Society and media have objectified our bodies and for many years we have talked about our sexuality from a male perspective to satisfy men. Our ‘Misterio’ is our perspective on satisfying ourselves.”
