Rainbow Katherina poses rigid, cold, and alone while facing life’s challenges. As she slowly interacts with nature, discovering the elements: she comes across Water-woman, who makes way for the Golden-man, who brings forth Rainbow. She grows powerful as they bring together Light, Shadow, and endless colors in an apotheotic ending where the newly conquered calm is filled with meaning.

Personal testimonial


Making this clip was a challenge, we always think it will be quiet but the encounter between subjectivities added to the ecstasy of creation are always alchemy of a set to be handled with balance. This clip was filmed in the garden of my house, it had an elaborate art direction to make my garden a jungle, we got a lot of cut plants from the neighborhood gardening, my smokies always have this magic of chance. It was very magical to realize this power of plants to grow and fill powerful ones with their excess of abundance. I counted on the makeup and characterization of Alma Negrot, a renowned and powerful artist. We even had a documentary team recording our work for a creative documentary. As a team we received support from the wonderful network of artists that surrounds me and I was very happy when they applauded the result and called it “sensational”. I am very grateful to them for their collaboration, support, and feedback. Artistic accompaniment is everything in this life.


Where did the music come from?


I was in Bahia studying dance (dance of the orixás, dance of the wild technique). One day I fell out of bed at 5 am and felt that I needed to go to the balcony. That's when I saw one of the most beautiful rainbows I have ever seen - it was born and 'died' in seawater. In a next moment, when I sat down to compose, that rainbow 'voice' came to me, as if to say: "It is not easy, but whenever it is very difficult, remember me and all the times that I have graced you with my presence ".

RAINBOW is a cure for me. And you: who or what heals you when you are sad?

I fly away from shadows

I run aways from madness

I pick my medicine from nature

And the question is who will heal me when I'm down

The question is who will heal me when I'm down

I will always spring you rainbows

And those rainbows will point to your cure and mine

Just take a moment to remember my rainbow

Take a moment and remember those rainbows
