“I want to tell Brazilian stories without them being filtered through a Western or Eurocentric lens.” -Ode curator, writer, stylist, film director

Colors is one of my go tos for finding out about up and coming Brazilian artists. They’re doing a great job of consistently featuring a variety of new and well established talent, from the hugely popular MC Dricka and rapper Emicida, to up and comers like Tasha & Tracie. And not just rappers, either. Colors’ recent web editorial highlights a wide range of genres, perspectives, musicians, photographers, DJs, aspiring professional creatives and more from South America’s largest country, allowing them to hold the camera, take center stage and speak their minds in an unadulterated way. Feels especially poignant and necessary given the socio political climate in Brazil at this time. Definitely subscribe to Colors on YouTube if you haven’t already.

This mellow, soothing vibe on “Temporal” by producer, singer, songwriter Bruna Mendez and Lucs Romero is one of many artists & performances I’ve enjoyed on the channel:
