Swing-a-do Cats



Connected to the Groove and carried by a melodic soul. Her passion for Bossa Nova, Latin, Funk and jazz, leads to a touching performance in sensual vocals and impulsive percussion.

Whether as the driving Congeira for salsa- and sambadancers, as big band singer with an old style swingvoice, or a sympathetic singing entertainer in various Latin Jazz bands, we experience a dedicated, sometimes mischievous artist who is looking for lively dialogue through music.

In addition to the multilingual singing Groovelle plays as the main instrument conga; and so: Cajon, Bongos, Pandeiro, Maracas, Shaker, Body Percussion, and various other small Percussion and Noises.

Brasilian-, english-, french- and germanspeaking Singer and Storyteller; Percussionist, Congaplayer, Sambista and Noisemaker.

My ambition is to work in music and other art projects all over the world, share music and culture and also inventing new things together.
