Their name, Ayom, refers to the “Lord of Music” that in Afro brazilian mithology (Candomblè) exists in the tambor and taught humans to play music and sing.
Blending century old traditions with the black and rhythmical language of lusophone cultures, Ayom provide a hot-stepping and spiritual voyage across the African diaspora.
Thus, musicality flourishes nomadic, profound, provocative and dancing, where tradition and contami- nation, male and female, poetry and energy, joy and engagement coexist.
