Electronic World Music
Kaleema’s music is where the organic and the exotic collide. Her songs contain notes of South American melodies, African folklore, all coming together under contemporary electronic beats.
With a classical musical background, the composer and producer Heidi Lewandowski combines in her creations the Afro-Colombian pulse, classical instruments, and pop and hip hop flavor. Kaleema reflects the sound of a soul free of territorial and musical boundaries.
Nómada, the first album, was edited by the Brazilian label Tropical Twista in 2017 and presented live in Europe, USA and Latin America. Nómada Remixes was released in early 2018 and featured Chancha Via Circuito, El Búho, Sidirum & Uji tracks.
In 2018 Shika Shika’s compilation Unión included her original track Obsidiana and featured on El Búho’s and Chancha Via Circuito’s latest records. In early 2019 her version of anonymous folkloric song Las hojas tienen mudanza was edited in Argentinean digital folklore compilation Flora y Fauna curated by PUENTE. Lagartijeando, Cero39, and Populous were some of the artists she collaborated with this year.
Her second album will be released in 2020, after a hectic year touring Europe, North and South America. In 2019 she was part of Lollapalooza Chile, Festival Mutek Montreal (Canadá), Festival Chateau Perché (France), Festival Hedoné (Poland), Festival Dos Tierras (México) and Festival Senderos (Uruguay) and she started 2020 playing at Yelapa Gathering (México).
