About

I was born in the US but both of my parents are 100% Cabo Verdean. I didn’t grow up fluently speaking the language, so when I was creating my brand I had to search the internet for a word to describe myself. I came across LARAXADU on a translated word list. It said it meant rebel. So from 2014-2019 I rebelled…in 2019 I moved to Cabo Verde to relax. In 2021 I visited The Rabelados, a village of Cabo Verdeans who have always rebelled. One of the sons of a Rabelada later told me that for them LARAXADU means malandra , or lazy person. A lazy person to one, can be someone relaxing to another. Today I can say LARAXADU is for the Rebels that Relaxed or pa kes Rabelados ki Relaxa.

Through LARAXADU I create art to support FOUNDATION FOR FOGO and KRIOLABOOKS
