Based in Berlin, NAPALMA mixes Afro-Brazilian sounds, percussions, electronic beats, brass and vocals, transcending multiple genres, using traditional rhythms from around the world and sounding super contemporary. 

Cid Travaglia is the driving force and co-producer behind the electronic programming, percussionist, and curator putting together a network of different vocalists and musicians. In concerts & in studio, NAPALMA is a dynamic and collaborative project, while maintaining the multicultural identity and energy for the dance floors. 

Born in Vitória, Brazil in 2004 with a very unique sound and the spirit for travelling, 
NAPALMA broke boundaries living in the African Continent for one decade (South Africa and Mozambique), while building an international career doing performances in more than 30 countries.

The highlights of the latest releases are the music videos for 'Drive Safe' with AI Image Generation and the visionary landscape of "Brain/City", an art installation envisioned by Israeli contemporary artist Yaron Steinberg, the video 'Mbëguel' recorded in Rio de Janeiro and several beaches in Mozambique, 'Gëstou' with images of Berlin covered by snow, 'Sunu Warëf', recorded in the Amazon Forest and 'URBAN ART Tribute', recorded in twelve countries, that is gaining momentum at the film festival circuit, with the award of 'Best Music Video' at SIFF - Swedish International Film Festival and selected for Festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Canada.
