This video work is a celebration of the "BUNDA PANDEIRO." In Brazilian slang, the two words are used to describe attractive buttocks
by referring to them as a tambourine. The rear end has globally become the new focus of sexuality. The film blurs the lines between gender and race by reducing each participant to the role of a musical instrument. Traditional sexual roles and racial constructs are eliminated. The opera is a metaphorical representation of the “tambourine,“ which has no gender, or ethnicity but is defined perfect just from the sound that it makes.
