Kilombo is a place of gathering, resistance and dreaming, where the community nourishes, shares and cares. It is a place of strength and liberation. After a first edition in 2021, the Aurora Negra collective – Cléo Diára, Isabél Zuaa and Nádia Yracema – once again creates a space where they bring together artists who, with their art, have contributed to the creation of dreams and utopias, thinking about the present with the will to transform the future and relying on the celebration of their ancestry and existence. “Kilombo-ing” to celebrate art and resilience.
