Olayá at the Magic Garden

June 21 @ 7:30 pm - June 22 @ 2:00 am

Olayá’s music is heavily rhythmic and contagiously fun, a fresh take on a traditional Brazilian sound never before heard in the UK.

Olayá is a female-led flute and percussion band inspired by Northeastern Brazilian bandas de pifanos (bamboo flutes), with the elemental force of flutes, rich vocal harmonies, driving percussion and bass. Olayá’s music is heavily rhythmic and contagiously fun, a fresh take on a traditional Brazilian sound never before heard in the UK.

United by their passion for Brazilian music and exploring sounds, Olayá formed in 2022. After their sold-out debut gig in May 2023, they were snapped up by bookers and have since headlined at Jaminaround, Basket of Light and Leeds festival. Their sets contain danceable rootsy Brazilian forró tunes as well as lush contemplative numbers, moving audiences in every way!

Olayá’s musicians have long been at the forefront of London’s Brazilian music scene, having played with artists such as Gal Costa, Alvorada and Antonio Forcione, and have appeared on BBC Radio 3, Jazz FM, Worldwide FM and the West End stage.

Olaya are:

Rosanna Ter-Berg (flutes, vocals)
Rachel Hayter (flutes, vocals)
Ines Loubet (vocals, percussionist)
Julio de Castro (bassist, vocals)
Jansen Santana (percussion)
