Best Local International /World Music Band

Giwayan Mata

Atlanta's all-female drum and dance troupe create the kind of righteous rumble on stage that ripples through the bones of audience members and nearly crumbles the walls. It's impossible not to be moved -- both spiritually and physically -- by the display of polyrhythmic percussion and frenetic movement. Their occasional performances, often at Spelman College, never fail to leave the crowd standing, stomping and clapping to the beat.
