Funk Carioca [coll] – [Mr Bongo]


Heavily influenced by Miami Bass, this is Brazil’s own brand of hip-hop. Often minimal in structure, simple out of necessity, and made with only the equipment they could get their hands on, this music originated from some of the most impoverished parts of Brazil. With lyrics ranging from naughty innuendos, to subtle drug references, to just the longing to feel pride for the favela you came from; these songs maintain an upbeat, bass heavy outlook on life, proving no matter what hardships these people face, it can’t be denied that at the end of the day, they know how to party…really, kids in Brazil get fucked up to this shit.
