Karol Conka: Batuk Freak
Buy! - (Mr. Bongo)
This Brazilian rapper’s debut album is an impressive, hard-hitting blend of hip hop, baile funk, batucada and other styles, combining trap rhythms, bright synths, booming bass and her fiery delivery with Afro-Brazilian percussion and other traditional Brazilian instrumentation for a sound that’s both deeply rooted and ultra-modern. 4/11/2014 - Don Yates
