The Latin Grufti project began to be produced by Talita Bazzo Rauber at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, when social isolation became a reality. Initially, it involved experiments in the areas of music, video, dance and performance, resulting in videos that transitioned between video-performance and video-dance, later consolidating as music videos. As the project evolved, the artist also explored Gothic concepts, identifying elements that permeated her work and inspired her to create new works.

The artist associated the climate of fear of the 1980s - which, according to Christoph Grunenberg, resulted in a resurgence of Gothic - with the fear induced by the disease. In this way, one can think of the quarantine period as a Gothic period. The unknown, airborne virus has turned anyone into a potential monster, a possible carrier of the deadly virus.

With the gradual easing of social isolation, after almost two years of the project, the artist was invited to perform at a night event for the goth subculture, which made her realize that the project had the characteristics of a band. She started to create live shows, seeing presentations as performances, event-works, art production.

To date, the project has produced ten videos, released on YouTube between 2020 and 2023, an album, called Pandemia, with seven songs available on streaming platforms, and five shows held in various cities. Most of the shows were held at goth subculture events, and the performances were recorded and shared on YouTube.
