Gato Preto


Gato Preto (“Black Cat” in Portuguese) is a music project from rapper Gata Misteriosa (Mozambique/Portugal) and DJ/producer Lee Bass (Ghana/Germany).

The duo unveil the African music paradise reflecting their roots in the polyrhythm of Bass’ Ghana and the Portuguese slang of Gatas Mozambique.

With ahypersonic beat-machine Gato Preto travel through time and bass – always on the hunt for new grooves. For a long time Lee was sending out frequencies into space when he finally caught a strange message from another galaxy: it was Gata who responded. The two decided to remix their forces for a world with better grooves.

Unique is what they are live: futuristic outfits combined with Gata jumping the stage, rhyming, singing and drobing the drums. They played at the African Futures Festival in Johannesburg in November 2015. Gato Preto are part of the international afro-futuristic scene where they travel the globe and collaborate with many international artist like Edu K, Spoek Mathambo, Mc Zulu and many more. In September they performed at Uganda's Nyege Nyege Festival.

They are set to launch their album "Tempo" in February 2017.
