Gato Preto

Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?

We are Gato Preto (Black Cat) consiting of Gata Misteriosa (Vocals,Timbales), Lee Bass (Producer,Beats,Snyths) and Live we have Moussa Diallo (Djembe) with us.

We are from Mocambique,Ghana,Senegal,Germany and Portugal, so totally mixed like our Sound: Afrobeats,House,Breabeat and analog Instruments are combined to get our own twist in Music…

How would you describe your style and genre?

Its a mixture of mayn african sounds hailing from east to west… we combine analog and traditional instruments into our very rough and banging electro sound to create something new and exciting..some call it kuduro,others afrohouse…we would say its afrofuturistic music with a message…

Who are your biggest influences and idols … and why? Do you have any idols? Are you a super fan of anyone? (Dead or alive, musician or non-musician)

uff,there are so many to mention.from soul legends like aretha franklin, to ebo taylor,pat thomas, daft punk, bassment jaxx, beastie boys, herbie hancock.. its hard to name them all hahaha..all of them influenced us to a degree..
