The New Face of Brazilian Hip-Hop
Karol Conka was born in Curitiba, the capital city of Paraná, Southern Brazil. She began to make rhymes when she was in high school. After a few partnerships, she met producer Nave (Emicida, Marcelo D2, among others) and the music that matched perfectly her proposal to make rap with universal sonority, by adding heavy beats to organic timbres. Before releasing her debut album, her three official video clips already had 1.5 million views on Youtube. The acknowledgement was experienced through nominations (Aposta VMB in 2011) and invitations as a special guest in a Racionais MCs show, besides sharing the stage with Marcelo D2, Emicida and Kamau on many occasions. In the Meet the Legends Project, she felt honored by the presence of Luiz Melodia in the song “Até Amanhecer”. In early 2013, she was the opening artist for Criolo’s show at Circo Voador, the mythical cultural area in Rio de Janeiro.
Dj GArRinchA & Dj.Dr.Sócrates
strictly vinyl with a focus on quality music
Garra Berlin (Dj GARrinchA), one of the YAAM residents spinner (with partner Dr. Sócrates) at the tropical diaspora roots sound, describes his party’s musical ethos as “A new platform for live music and performance in Berlin dedicated to the fusion of different styles, a culture way that is especially cultivated in Brazil since the days of Tropicalia.” He’s right: The melting pot of samba, cumbia, dancehall, Afro Beat, Funk, Salsa and more results in a bump ‘n’ grind groove that the people can’t get enough of. Fresh from gigs in south-america and Europe the DJs are kicking off a new series of monthly parties in the YAAM (www.yaam.de), featuring many Bands and DJ´s from Europe and worldwide.
