IEMANJA: BEMBE DO MERCADO: SANTO AMARO, BAHIA. Michaela Melian and Thomas Meinecke. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 216 pp. ISBN 9783944669250 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Iemanja is not only the title of Thomas Meinecke and Michaela Melian's new project but also the name of one of the most important goddesses of Afro-Brazilian religion: queen of the ocean, protector of children and the essence of motherhood. Each year, the Brazilian beach town of Santo Amaro honors Iemanja with a massive festival. Meinecke and his wife, Melian, both well-known members of the beloved German New Wave band F.S.K., attended the festival in 2010 in order to research these unique Afro-American religions. They discovered Santo Amaro through the legacy of pop literature writer Hubert Fichte, who famously conducted ethnographic research on the festival with photographer Leonore Mau in the mid-1970s. With the influence of Fichte's research, Meinecke melds Melian's 170 documentary photographs, along with inspiration from his prior novel Lookalikes (Suhrkamp, 2011), to create this intriguing new hybrid novel.
