Meninas Da Lua


"We believe culture comes to gather people together. To make us grow as a society and to make us stronger through social transformation. So our group is related to that. It’s not only music; it’s music for a bigger purpose."

Meninas da Lua – Transformation thru the drum


Meninas da Lua is the place where the feminine mystery of the moon meets the power and energy of mother earth.  Audiences are swept up in a vibrant, high-spirited celebration by this feminine percussion, vocal and dance collective, that pays homage to the deep roots of Afro Brazilian culture.


With their roots in Byron Bay, Meninas da Lua (Moon Girls)  is a multi-ethnic group who specialize  in the traditional African-infused rhythms from the north-east of Brazil:  the Coco,  Ijexa, Maracatu and Afoxe and call upon the power of the  Orixas to bless and guide us.  


Featuring  the powerful, deep voice of Priscilla Rios,  Meninas da Lua bring the meaning and strength of this rich culture, as a social transformer for respect, unity, love and generosity.  


A hit at  Mullum Music Festival 2018, Buskers By the Creek Festival 2018, Splendour in the Grass Festival 2018, Island Vibe Festival 2017, 2016, BEMAC 2016, Festa Junina Miami Marketta and Miami Carnaval 2017.


"If you want your heart to beat with more joy, then look out for this band"
