O Rappa - Brazil

This is my favorite band, O Rappa.
They are from the north side of Rio de Janeiro.
They sing about a worthwhile subject... Reality.
Their songs have poetic and soulful lyrics about day-to-day life in the poor areas of Rio.

Marcelo Falcão, the best male singer in Brazil, in my opinion.

mais tambem trazem a duvida que é você que ta nessa prisão."

Special thanks to Fernanda, for going out of her way to buy the ticket for me,
Special thanks to Klaus for calling the club to answer my question about bringing a camera, this may not seem like a big deal,
but in these small towns in Brazil, it's a miracle to get information from these Mickey-Mouse companies.
and special thanks to Juliana and Elian? for driving me there and back.

ROOOOOCK!!!!!

Not too many Brazilian singers actually sing like this, most yell, rap or gently whimper.

I stayed in Floripa another week just to see these guys live.

Their former drummer, Yuka was shot and paralized. He later left the band.

The majority of this band is from Belfort Roxo... I think.

It was weird how there really was no pushing or shoving (Except when people were jumping up and down in the beginning),
I had room to dance, which doesn't happen with big bands in America (that close to the stage).
you'd usually have some cheese-bag slamming into you, or more likely,
the whole crowd pushing forward, fighting like a garbage can of suffocating rats trying to reach the surface.

Their music videos, for me, are some of the hardest to watch,
just because of the extreme emotion they stir up.
