1857GICR_003_0374

“There is no love in SP / The bars are full of empty souls / The greediness vibrates, the vanity excites.” The lyrics above are about São Paulo, my hometown, but ironically I saw Criolo for the first time in Berlin. This song was released in 2011. Listening to it again, I realise that unfortunately, … Read more“Misery and Chaos are Reigning” – Criolo’s Boca de Lobo Tour

Anastasia_Alessandro-Sigismondi

Is yoga the cure for all Berlin’s vices? Berlin Yoga Conference 2019 believes so. A year ago, I attended a pop-up event giving a small sample of what Berlin Yoga Conference would offer. Back then, I had a lovely chat with Anastasia Shevchenko about how non-yoga fans could actually join the event, which would take … Read moreYoga for All: How Berlin Yoga Conference is Democratizing the Practice

Bixa Travesty: A Glimpse Into Brazilian Transvestism

Bixa Travesty

“Brazil is the country that kills most transvestites and transsexuals in the world.” “The life expectancy of these people is 35 years old, less than half of national average of 75.

Forget about schicki micki Mitte – if you want to find that startling statement piece that shouts ‘you’, head to Neukölln (and more precisely to the Chrome Store) When I went to visit Chrome Store, I imagined it would be like any other vintage shop from Berlin: a mix of hipsterish items, bohemian hats, garish … Read moreChrome Store Brings Berlin Designers to Neukölln
