Luedji Luna transmits serenity in her singing and dancing, where everything happens in an natural, organic way, creating a powerful atmosphere. With her songs and poetic lyrics she sheds new light on the African origins of Brazilian music, something that is often disregarded in the current Brazilian culture. She surrounds herself with musicians coming from various backgrounds, for example a Cuban bassist, a Kenyan guitarist, a Swedish percussionist and a Congolese violinist, who move between all kinds of styles, from traditional music to Brazilian pop and jazz. ‘Brazilian singer-songwriter Luedji Luna’s music surveys and celebrates the connections between her home country and her African roots, and addresses the many ways in which Afro-Brazilians and women are marginalized in Brazil and beyond. Along the way, she presides over a sound as expansive as the distances it embodies, as Afro-Brazilian rhythms and other traditional sounds meld with familiar strains of R&B, jazz and, at times, electronic beats. She serves up a fluid and laid-back slice of sunshine’ (NPR).
