Ludmilla, the multifaceted Brazilian superstar, has made history on the Coachella stage. Thanks to her energizing performance, she became the first Afro-Latina to grace Coachella’s main stage.  

With her dynamic blend of Pagode and Funk-pop, Ludmilla captivated audiences across both weekends, drawing widespread acclaim and even catching the attention of none other than Beyoncé herself, who kicked off her own set with a personalized audio note in acknowledgment of Ludmilla’s presence. 

Many people were here for Ludmilla’s Coachella debut. Some were even using the viral hashtag #Ludchella to further the discussion around her performance. However, her fans were not only enjoying her musical talents during these past weekends – they were also enjoying how open she was to herself, which is a great display of representation.  

Ludmilla Understands That Representation Matters

Ludmilla shared a heartfelt kiss with her wife on stage, a gesture that resonated deeply with fans and underscored her support for the LGBTQ+ community. Additionally, her decision to feature an empowering message from Erika Hilton, Brazil’s pioneering transgender activist, further solidified her reputation as an artist unafraid to use her platform for positive change. 

Amidst the pulsating energy of her performances, Ludmilla delighted fans by inviting Colombian urban star, Ryan Castro, as a special guest to join her on stage for a rendition of their collaboration “Piña Colada.”  

This moment marked Ludmilla’s first foray into full Spanish-language music, signaling her intention to embrace diverse musical landscapes while staying true to her Brazilian roots.  

It is evident that Ludmilla remains steadfast in her dedication to her craft and her cultural heritage. With accolades such as being the first Afro-Latina to amass one billion streams on Spotify and ranking as the sixth most-listened-to-Black female artist globally, Ludmilla’s influence shows no signs of waning.
