Music & clubs
Mozambican MC Gata Misteriosa and Ghanainan-German Lee Bass are Gato Preto, a duo defined by fusion. They are known for frantic stage shows and their Afrofuturistic club sound that mixes the beats of Rio’s favelas and South African townships with an electronic pulse.
The band’s debut album “Tempo” (2017) features not only club-friendly tracks but a social message as well, taking on issues like police violence and the sexual abuse of women and children. Gato Preto is currently working on their follow-up album, meaning the band may have some surprises in store for their performance in Kaisaniemi Park.
