Preview: Marcelo D2 @ The Jazz Cafe (London; Monday 8th July 2019)

MarceloD2 jazzcafe

During the last year, hip-hop has become one of the most attractive Brazilian musical exports, and Marcelo D2 one of its most emphatic representatives. So, it’s a pleasure to welcome him back to London, writing about his upcoming show at The Jazz Café, which will also be the UK album launch of AMAR é para os FORTES, his latest release.

Despite being one of the most popular names in the South American music scene and boasting a 20-year solo career, the MC from Rio de Janeiro has never rested on his laurels and has always moved his sound forward. His new work is a glaring example; it’s a reaction to the political climate matured in his country, and his lyrics and sound are a heartfelt and fervent reaction, not only to the Bolsonaro’s government, but also to the growing apathy and indifference spreading among his countrymen and women.

If you want to open a window on the Brazilian present, don’t miss Marcelo D2’s show on Monday 8th July.

Album Review: Marcelo D2 & SambaDrive – Living Room Live Vol.1

Thank God for Brazil, that land, full of artists who believe in there being splendour in their differences, producing music that is the stuff of mythology. First came samba, then samba grew into bossa nova, samba cancao, tropicalia, samba torta, add a hip-hop flavour, and we start to get an…
