“In 2020, there were so many images of black suffering on social media. After that traumatizing year, I needed images showing me that being black wasn’t only about suffering, I wanted healing images,” Yndi tells PAPER. “It’s exactly what the Afro-Brazilian culture has been doing for centuries, it conveys a strength that keeps us alive in a dehumanizing society. ‘Noir Brésil’ is a poem for my ancestors.” Read recent piece with i-D France HERE.

“[Dream Koala’s ‘Dimenson Sleeper’] feels like an uninhibited foray into a new musical dimension, a less dissonant, sweeter take on FKA Twigs’ experiments.”
“[Dream Koala’s ‘Odyssey’ is] akin to having strange words whispered into your ear as you experience an epic 3D soundscape”
