In this episode, The Cipher ventures to London and Rio de Janeiro to chat with Gabriela Vallim, a remarkable music journalist and co-founder of BaileFunkeCulture. This project is a bridge that connects the vibrant culture, music, events, and advocacy of black Brazil to the UK.
Gabriela shares her inspiring journey, from starting as a journalist and activist at a young age to navigating the challenging racial dynamics of a predominantly white university in Brazil. She delves into her experiences of working in corporate communications, advocacy, and even being the only black person in a prestigious job in Rio.
