This event is 21 and over
Gran Ritmos is excited to announce our first ever featured live performer to kick off our 2018 series! ZUZUKA PODEROSA is the queen warrior of her own special brand of Baile Funk: CARIOCA BASS
Funk Carioca (another name for Baile Funk, which means “The Funk Ball”) originated in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, borrowing heavily from the Miami Booty Bass movement of the 80s; it’s just the starting place of the ZUZUKA POWER-sound.
$10 at the door all night, or $7 in advance if you grab one of the limited presale tickets!http://www.holocene.org/event/1624652/
Gran Ritmos celebrates regional styles while finding cultural connections and sounds in new places.
- Cumbia, Reggaeton, Dancehall, Ruidoson, Moombathon, Bass, House, Favela, Baile Funk, Tribal, Dembow, Tecno, Dub, Club, Post-Internet, Utopian and everything in between -
ZUZUKA collaborates and releases singles with producers from all over the world who mix the past with the future in Sur America-cosmic new ways. She raps and sings in Portuguese, Spanish and English (and she likes to say “Body Language”), musing provocatively and sarcastically over boomy electric kick drums and Latin percussion.
"Not only is she bringing her own brand of the hot Brazilian underground sound to the rest of the world, but from her international vantage point she operates like a provocatively rhyming hurricane, sucking up global riddims from ghettotech to dancehall and flinging them back out at gale-force speeds." - MTV
