Flavia Coelho is a nomad by nature – a thirst for adventure inherited from her mother – beautician for the first transvestites in the neighbourhood of São Gonçalo in Rio de Janeiro. At home she listened, as loudly as possible, to Diana Ross, Nina Hagen and the divas of popular Brazilian songs like Gal Costa and Maria Bethânia, whereas her father collected cassettes of traditional music of the Nordeste. As a little girl she was full of the sound of Forro and the Repente music of Brazilian griots.
Flavia is one who builds new aural textures on the memory and culture of Brazilian music.
More in touch with her roots in Mundo Meu than in her previous release, Bossa Muffin, she goes back to her past and plunges us into an urban jungle coloured with native slang.
