About The Voodoo Sound
The Voodoo Sound is a rap-rock band from Singapore whose music shows a sliver of ethnic influences. The diverse racial backgrounds of the band members shape their sound. With their extensive performances ranging from drumming up a scene on the streets, to tearing down stages in music festivals and events, expect nothing less than an audiovisual-gasmic experience.

Love, Togetherness and Expression makes up the core of MOTUS. With a strong musical direction rooted in samba music, MOTUS (Latin for movement) is made up of individuals from diverse musical backgrounds. At the heart of MOTUS are the bateria players that give the band its batucada edge. Complementing the bateria is a line-up of vocalists and instrumentalists who add a distinct style of melody and harmonies that keep their music current and engaging. The band aims to convey this message through their music and choreography. Their vision is to create infectious music that resonates with their audiences.
