Namorados da Lua



Namorados Da Lua - NDL - is among the most prominent Brazilian bands in the San Francisco Bay Area. Led and produced by Danilo Portugal, a California resident from Bahia, Brazil, the band brings together musicians from North and South America (Brazil), Africa and Europe with the common love of creating music with positive messages.

NDL’s music is a provocative fusion of styles, incorporating influences from reggae, jazz, pop, rock, and funk, as well as uniquely Brazilian rhythms of samba, forró and axé.

With a repertoire composed mostly of original songs, the liveliness of the lyrics brings an atmosphere of tropical love that allows you to feel the sun on your face and your feet in the sand. NDL’s songs speak of love, spirituality and family, promote a musical communion with the masses, a harmonious experience and respect for differences.

Chulita Vinyl Club is made up of women, gender-non-conforming, non-binary, LGBTQ+ and self-identifying people of color. CVC launched in 2014, with the context of providing a safe space for empowerment, togetherness and to utilize music and vinyl as a form of resistance against the erasure of culture. Each Chulita identifies with their own identity. They are not to be classified as one nationality or culture. Within CVC they individually identify with the following: Latinxs, Tejanxs, Chicanxs, Xicanx, Afro-Latinx and many more. The unifying denominator is that they come together over the belief that EL DISCO ES CULTURA and they believe that is worth preserving and perpetuating.
