What started out as a unique jam project, Uma Galera became a sound made up of 7 different cultures and styles from allover the world.
Formed from a mix of long time friendships to quick first glance love & chemistry, the band expresses and lives strongly through the global message of unity and peace.
It’s focuses are on bringing to the stage an amazing sound experience, combined with a fun performance for every crowd-member to enjoy. With trippy chill-out soul grooves to tons of jump-on-your-feet tunes, Uma Galera has something for everyone.
Inspired by a mix of cultures, styles, and rhythms from all around the world (with band members from Uruguay, Venezuela,Argentina,Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Brazil, Cuba, and Colombia) the band is among the new generation of musicians giving birth to new soul & world music. Ska, funk, Jazz, Cumbia, Samba, Reggae, Salsa, Candombe, Punk, Rock, Hip-Hop, Bossa Nova, and Blues are just some of the styles that Uma Galera incorporates into their music performances.
And the band does not limit their sound, as they also interpret a wide range of covers from many of their favorite new and old artists such as, Amy Winehouse, James Brown, Bob Marley, Adele, Franz Ferdinand & Pink Floyd, etc…

In Brazil, the word Galera first meant “the most popular place in a football stadium” and where the coolest and most excited fans went to, today it means “A big group of friends”.
