KALEEMA

Heidi Lewandowski, singer and producer was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has been composing independently, fearlessly breaking many of the rules she was taught.

 

In her music the organic and the exotic collide- with notes of South American melodies, lush strings, analog synths, vocals & powerful rhythms melding under electronic beats. Her background in classical violin and piano informs her creations, as she combines technical formality with Afro-Colombian rhythms, organic textures and modern touches of pop, downtempo and hip-hop. Ripe with punchy beats and hypnotic chants, her music is uplifting in an unexpected way- and truly borderless in its essence.
 

Nómada -her first album- was released by the Brazilian label Tropical Twista in 2017 to critical acclaim, being praised by the likes of Remezcla, NPR, and Billboard. In 2018, she released Nómada Remixes, with features Chancha Via Circuito, El Búho, Sidirum & Uji reworking her previously-released tracks.

During 2018 and 2019 Kaleema toured extensively in Europe, US, Canada and South America playing in prestigious festivals such as MUTEK Montreal, Lollapalooza Chile, Envision Festival (Costa Rica), FUSION Festival (Germany), Chateau Perche (France), Beloved Festival (US) and many more.

She just finished her second LP, and her most ambitious work to date, ”Utera”. It's slated for release in 2020.
