Da Banda Collective


The Da Banda Collective are bringing a fresh, new sound to the mainstream, a taste of the Angolan Back Yard mixed with soulful vocals and electronic dance music. This is where Brazil got its booty from!


Da Banda is an international entertainment company with Angolan pop-music culture at its heart, bringing the freshest recording artists, DJs and models to the world.

Launching in 2008, Da Banda has had a successful track record with creative projects that celebrate the country's talent in music, dance and fashion.

Our latest project is The Da Banda Collective (DBC), an exciting new collective of Angolan musicians performing a mix of Angolan pop-music with tribal beats, flavoured by house and techno. From semba to samba, Luanda to the Rio carnival, Angolan capoeira to Brazilian capoeira, the Da Banda collective are bringing a fresh, new sound to the mainstream.

The act performed this year at the International Music Summit (Ibiza) alongside Fatboy Slim and Idris Elba at Dalt Villa, as well as hosting nights at Cafe Mambo and Sands Beach Bar on the island.

DJ Silyvi was invited back to Ibiza later this year to play at Ushuaïa, gaining him international recognition, including being asked to participated in "Set for Peace", an initiative to encourage DJs to speak up about the effect the Global Dance Industry can have on peace.

Solange Hilario, the singer for DBC, rose to recognition after participating in Portuguese Idol, where she stole the hearts of the fans and judges with her soulful vocals and passion for music. She is currently working on several projects with some of the industry's best writers and producers, including a solo album to be released in 2014. Alongside this, Solange is nurturing her acting talent, starring in Emmy Award nominated TV show 'Windeck'

DJ Silyvi and Francis Boy are also big favourites in the Kuduro music scene and were asked to perform at this year's 'I Love Kuduro' festival in Luanda.

DBC are authentic, innovative and energetic; bringing Angola to the world.
