With the release of the album Travesti Biológica, artist Mavi Veloso will release a new bombastic music video every Friday on ArtsEverywhere. The videos comprise a visual album focusing on Mavi’s personal stories as a travesti migrating from Brazil to Europe. The videos draw on stories of the diaspora of trans women who migrated for reasons of oppression and survival, and the need to discover new horizons.
Travesti Biológica was performed and produced by Mavi Veloso, in collaboration with Urubu Marinka, Salisme, and Fitgirl. Her creative direction was in collaboration with Pauli Scharlach and executive production by BicudaRec.

Invoking her previous work, “i wanna make revolution”, Mavi Veloso’s premiere music video for Travesti Biológica is a moody camcorder montage of landscapes, bodies, and nocturnal shapes.
Stark lighting and minimal drum lines define the second music video from Mavi Veloso’s Travesti Biológica album.
In D Meantime
Mavi awakens in an alien landscape in the third music video from her album Travesti Biológica.
This propulsive anthem acts as the title track to Mavi Veloso’s album, and asserts Mavi’s identity as a woman…and a real bitch too.
The fifth video from the album Travesti Biológica celebrates the cultural turn when we claim terms that once were used to oppress.
Treasure in My Mouth
With spacey synths and a disco dance beat, “Treasure in My Mouth” is an intimate portrait of self-care and resistance.
With enTR4V4, Mavi takes us on a voyeuristic tour of various bedrooms to an insistent four-on-the-(boudoir)-floor rhythm.
Everything U Want
Track 8 from Travesti Biológica features vocals from multidisciplinary artist Ivy Monteiro.
The latest video from Travesti Biológica affirms the need for self-respect, self-care, and empowerment.
