10. 12. 2013 Thanks France!
We are back from a little trip to France... and we had a wonderful time in Chôlet. Thanks for all!!! And hope to see you soon.
5. 4. 2013 Da Cruz will soon be back!
We are eagerly working on our 4th album!!! This is why it was a little bit calmer around Da Cruz the last months. But we can't wait to show you what we have in mind. We travelled a lot to get inspiration (or just to get tranquility) - from Burkina Faso to Lanzarote, from India to Bettmeralp, an we always had our mobile studio with us. Our problem: we have 20 new songs now - a little bit too much to compile a cool album, but we will fix that - promised! The new album is planned for November 2013. Soon we will post some snippets...
Here you see Mariana near Bobo in Burkina Faso.
20. 11. 2012 Cancellation of the Israeli shows
Due to the alarming situation in and around Israel, Da Cruz decided – with a heavy heart – to cancel their shows in Israel planned for this week.
Beside safety concerns, it seems impracticable to us to celebrate a carefree and cheerful show under these serious and uncertain circumstances.
A big sorry goes out to those who have already purchased tickets and especially to the organizers, who have done a great work to promote Da Cruz in Israel.
Hope to see you next – in more peaceful times. Team Da Cruz
16. 11. 2012 Da Cruz go east!
See you in Israel - and be peaceful!!!!

28. 7. 2011 First Reviews
Da Cruz was featured on KEXP's Midday Show. Don Yates of KEXP called the album an "edgy fusion of various Brazilian styles with electro, hip hop, synth-punk, Afro-beat, Ethiopian funk and more, with loud buzzing synths and booming bass bringing a gritty urban edge to the bands colorful dance grooves." He is right.
