Mandinga is the alter ego of oscilloID, two aliases of the musician Lucas de Miranda Vieira. As an opposite of oscilloID, oscillation, Mandinga doesn’t move. Time transits around Mandinga. Original from Northern Africa, he knows the winds of the nights in the desert. The wind whispers on Mandinga’s ears static grooves, dramatic patterns and melodies, in many tempos. His past lies on the other side of the ocean, the time of outrora, when Mandinga was the light in the Brazilian forests. Back then he carried his God wherever he went. We met Mandinga around a forest right here, in Belo Horizonte. He was going East, he said.
