Kalimba de Luna

The project “Kalimba de Luna” is not only painting series, but also my visual research based on Brazilian culture of carnival and its roots. The carnival is an act of resistance and a mix of different cultures that are represented in Brazil.

Kalimba is a musical instrument the came to Brazil from Africa, “Kalimba de Luna” is a song of a famous music band Boney M. The paintings are based on screen shots from Boney’s M music video “Kalimba de Luna”.

The series of paintings started to be painted in autumn of 2020 and is still in progress. The series will include 6 paintings.
