Luedji Luna (BRA)

Luedji Luna (BRA)A force to be reckoned with… Luedji Luna is more than just a major singer from Brazil: she is a poet, social activist, symbol and voice for millions of Afro-Brazilians. Her music has strains of MPB (Música Popular Brasileira, literally ‘Brazilian Popular Music’, Brazil’s post-Bossa Nova urban popular music), jazz, Congolese rhythms, Samba de Roda (of the Recôncavo of Bahia) traditions, and the percussive swing of candomblé. She chillis up her cocktail with powerful lyrics talking about existentialism, belonging, immigration, female empowerment and Afro-Brazilian identity. Festival perfection.
