Chico Matada, a Mozambican-born drummer, composer, and bandleader based in Finland, draws inspiration from a diverse array of influences, notably Mozambican Folk Music and Jazz.

His music is characterized by meditative and lamentful melodic lines, blending ancient aesthetics with contemporary flair. Matada's musical exploration extends to unconventional time signatures like 3/4, 5/4, and 9/4, infused with dynamic polyphonic and polyrhythmic elements derived from Ndokodo music of the Ndau people in Mozambique, his native land. In 2016, Matada released his solo album "Reflections," offering a collection of works that reflect his personal journey, musical interests, and debut as a bandleader and composer.

Musicians:
Chico Matada – drums, mbira
Juuso Rinta – double bass
Nikita Rafaelov – piano, synthesizer
Rafa Postel – trumpet
Hector Lepe – guitar
