Ladies of Midnight Blue are an Afro-Latin percussion & brass duet comprised of Hannabiell Sanders (Bass Trombone, African & Latin Percussion, and Composer) and Yilis del Carmen Suriel (African & Latin Percussion). They create a powerful and upbeat fusion that reaches deeply into trance drum rhythms to create a melodic sound that inspires dancing and audience participation. Their music consists of powerful and upbeat combinations of percussion, brass, vocal chants, and mbira arrangements. Find out more here
