Bunda Pandeiro is the first part of a trilogy that explores the rules of gender and race in the contemporary world. In Brazilian slang, the phrase is used to describe attractive buttocks by referring to them as a tambourine. While the ass is a universally recognized symbol of sexual allure, the film blurs lines between gender and race, reducing each participant to the utilitarian role of a musical instrument. Traditional sexual roles are also eliminated. This “body concert” is a metaphorical representation of the “tambourine,“ which has no gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation but is defined perfect simply from the sound that it makes.
