Gata grew up is Lisbon and her roots are in Mozambique from Lee`s roots are half in Ghana and half in Germany.His dad used to be a Funk and Soul Dj and owner of a Club – no wonder he was influenced by african and black music from around the world.
Gato Pretos built their name through stunning high energetic live performances where they combine Electronic Beats with powerful live percussions from Senegal – Worldmusic with todays Club Attitude combined with sensible ingredients of last decades black music sound!
From 2013 onwards they have been rocking dancefloors around the Globe:
No matter if its a hip electro club in Paris, an event in their home town Düsseldorf, or on international stages like „Nyege Nyege“-Festival in Uganda: When the black cat comes around, everyone will understand: their global bass power and progressive metropolitan grooves are unstoppable. Gato Preto‘s elaborate music videos are eye catchers especially their video for „Barulho“ caused loads of attention: with elements of the 80th steampunk and the ideal world of Afrofuturism pioneers, such as the P-Funk master George Clinton or the Dub-priest Lee Scratch Perry. „Tempo“ is an invitation to join them through time and space, present and past – two afrofuturistic aliens and Global-Bass-Travelers who search for their cultural African roots.
