Brazilian Cid Travaglia is the driving force and co-producer behind the electronic programming, percussionist, and curator putting together a network of different vocalists and musicians. In concerts & in studio, NAPALMA is a dynamic and collaborative project, while maintaining the multicultural identity and energy for the dance floors.

Based in Berlin, NAPALMA mixes Afro-Brazilian sounds and percussions, electronic beats, brass and eclectic vocals, creating an explosion of grooves conceived with a unique and original formula that started in Brazil in 2004 and broke boundaries living in African Continent for one decade (South Africa and Mozambique), while building an international career doing performances in more than 30 countries. 


Try to imagine a group with "cross-over vibes", transcending multiple genres, using traditional rhythms from around the world, and sounding super contemporary. For a complete and comprehensive experience, you need to attend their shows. In a few seconds, relax, you'll find yourself dancing and never stop!
