Da Lata, which means “from the tin” in Portuguese, is a U.K. collaborative led by musician and producer Chris Franck and DJ Patrick Forge. Inspired by Brazilian rhythms as well as Afrobeat, Latin music and other far flung flavors, Da Lata adds contemporary club beats and electronica to their spicy musical stew. Da Lata has created remixes for a wide range of artists, including Novalima, Ska Cubano, Femi Kuti, Carlinhos Brown, Bebel Gilberto and many others


A slang word that means “what’s-her-name,” “Fulaninha” talks about the fear and desire that comes with choosing which road to follow in life and the struggle to realize your dreams. It's a baião, a northeastern rhythm, synchronized with a basic dancehall rhythm.


Jane Doe left town to the rhythm of love
Set sail without fear
She won’t miss a step along the way
She’s gonna make it

Where would it all get her?
And fear crept in slowly
But her desire to dream
Just took over

Fixed on her goal, the clock ticking
A life still to be made
The world opening itself up
She’s understanding
It was a bridge to be crossed

Where would the bridge get her?
And fear crept in slowly
But her desire to dream
Just took over

Fulaninha se foi na toada do amor
Embarcou sem medo de cair
Sem render nenhum passo de todo trajeto
Dali iria até o fim

Onde é que aquilo ia dar
E o medo vinha devagar
Mas um desejo de sonhar
Tomava conta do lugar

Arretada na meta o relógio rodando
E a vida longe de existir
Quando o mundo se abrindo,
Fulana entendendo
Era a ponte para se cumprir

Onde é que ponte ia dar
E o medo vinha devagar
Mas um desejo de sonhar
Tomava conta do lugar
