◉ GATO PRETO ◉ ( Mozambique, Portugal, Ghana )
Gato Preto – the afrofuturistic live act – put the essence of „Rockin´Favela Funk“ from Rio, „Township Grooves“ from South Africa and „Hybrid Tech“ Kuduro from Angola to a new level. They are today’s african music with the sensible ingredients of the last decades international club-music. Gato Preto has become one of the most vibrant and extravagant, contemporary African musical outfits. Fusing music and culture from Mozambique to Germany, Ghana to Senegal, this group will have you re- thinking everything you think you know about African music. This afrofuturistic live act "doesn't just put on a show; it makes a scene" NPR Music.
The band built their name through stunning high energetic live performances - they combine Electronic Beats with powerful live percussions and the intense vocal prowess of MC Gata Misteriosa. Their stage outfits, dancers, visuals and contagious rhythms make up an electric live show that nobody could ever forget.

◉ FREE OPTICS ◉ ( Blacklightnature Design )
We use art to transform the input that we get; to consolidate it into material objects, to process it and to express ourselves visually. We are using colors and paint in combination with fabrics to express visions and emotions. We like with the installations and decorations, unique Spaces / Worlds and atmospheres to build. For us, is psychedelic decoration defines itself as an expressive surface, over which we deal with the ethereal and metaphysical level of all. We want to give place to dreams, visions and feelings, in which one can refer to something that is not immediately touchable or recognizable from everyday life consciousness. into material objects, to process it and to express ourselves visually.
