Maracatu Nossa Luz - Verein für Feminismus und afro-brasilianische Kultur
Maracatu Nossa Luz was founded on International Women's Day 2019 and is the first women* Maracatu group in Austria. Anchored in the Afro-Brazilian Candomblé culture, Maracatu is a rhythm of community and resistance. Appreciating this heritage and the responsibility that comes with it, Maracatu Nossa Luz sees itself as a multicultural and plurilingual group that advocates feminist and anti-racist causes as well as LGBTQIA+-rights and cultivates and celebrates its Latin American and Afro-Brazilian connections. Our love of music and the joy of playing are always part of the program.
Motto O baque dos nossos tambores traduz o brilho da nossa luz, a força da nossa união conduz o baque do Nossa Luz
