ZUZUKA PODEROSA drops Brazilian bred, BK-based swagger like no other. She 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, Brazil, borrowing heavily from the Miami Booty Bass movement of the 80s; it’s just the starting place of the ZUZUKA POWER-sound.
Born in Vitoria, Brazil, ZUZUKA grew up in Rio and spent her formative years in the West Indies in the Caribbean. 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.
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, English and she likes to say “Body Language”, musing provocatively and sarcastically over boomy electric kick drums and Latin percussion.
