Biography

The magnetizing duo Gato Preto was born in the hype Parisian nightclubs, in the Zakk of Düsseldorf and on the international stage of the "Nyege Nyege" Festival at the source of the Nile in Uganda. Those "black cats" (French translation of Gato Preto) are as fierce as one can be.

Synthesizerseffects combined with African percussionists and dancers, are sure to keep the Gato Preto’s audience into a true state of trance. There isn’t anything or anyone that could stop this cosmopolitan groove and supersonic bass.


After featuring in Tracks on Arte in the show "Afrofuturisme", with clips counting more than 20 000 viewsGato Preto was chosen to perform in Womex in Poland in October 2017.  The group is constantly performing proving that their dark magic of afrobeat with a South African groove and a touch of techno of Angola, is irresistible.

New York Times:

“Afrofuturist global bass is how the members of Gato Preto describe their combustible blend of rap, funk and Senegalese drumming. The band is fronted by the explosively charismatic Gata Misteriosa, from Mozambique ... Their set had a steamy carnival energy, with the relentless drive of the machine-made pulse amplified by heart-quickening flurries of live drumming.“ - 

Chicago Tribune

"The best dance party of the week was thrown by Gato Preto..." -
