In Africa, the word Damballah describes the Spirit of Creation. The serpent divinity, along with is lover, AyidaWédo, the rainbow serpent, rides the sound vibrations that make you move and feel, creating wisdom, peace, purity, innocence & life.
Damballah is a Portuguese music project formed by Ismael in 2015. In the last 2 years,immersed in the forest, he discovered the sounds that connect with his soul. Bringing this landscape to a modern world,he creates a wavesound full of basslines, ancient chants, icaros, mantras and jungle enchantments, bringing inspiration from the Cosmos, with no boundaries but with special reminiscences from Mother Africa and South America. He started to be a resident in Ecstatic Dance Lisboa, weaving the loom of joy to dance, to feel and to be. Recently, he was invited to the first Ecstatic Dance Porto, where he built the roots of it, letting his wave fingerprint.
His journeys give life to the memory of sounds, without compromise their soul. From the initial truth of each sound, Damballah creates fantasy worlds where sentient beings recreate themselves in each movement, embracing the body temple, fertilizing the alma mater, turning sacred which is already glorious.
