About Luedji Luna
In Luedji “Luna” Rita, the sound of the African diaspora meets elements of samba de roda, Brazilian and Cuban jazz, mixed with acoustic afoxé rhythms and added electronics. Her debut album Um corpo no Mundo is, as she says, characterized by “ancestral nostalgia” and personal experiences that she discusses from an intersectional and feminist perspective. The relaxed-sounding songs are often about almost irresolvable tensions of today’s Brazilian society that Luedji Luna poetically explores. Uprooting, migrant perspectives, structural racism and the empowerment of Black women: as difficult as her themes may be, it all comes together easily in the music of Luedji Luna.
