Luedji Luna’s second album, entitled Bom Mesmo É Estar Debaixo d’Água (It’s Really Good To Be Underwater), builds a narrative about giving autonomy to black women, encouraging them to express their feelings and desires. Luedji is part of a generation of Bahian musicians – including rapper Baco Exu do Blues, the groups Àttøøxxá, and Baiana System, and Xenia França. Despite being part of this scene, Luedji Luna left Bahia three years ago for São Paulo where she recorded her first album, 2019’s Um Corpo No Mundo (A Body in the World).
“This new album is a look at my own experiences, my emotions and love, underlined by machismo and racism,” explains Luedji.“I think it’s important to bring up the theme of love from the perspective of the black woman, because there is an absence in literature. This woman speaking as she loves, who loves. When one thinks of struggle, it exists, but not in the sensitive field of love,” she says.
