Zuzuka Poderosa is the new queen warrior of her own special brand of baile funk. Funk carioca, originating in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, borrows heavily from Miami bass but with an added sense of urgency and brutal lyrics. Born in Victoria, Brazil, Zuzuka Poderosa grew up in Rio (with a stint in the West Indies) and later moved to Brooklyn, NYC to study jazz vocal improvisation. For the past few years, she's been building up the underground baile funk scene in New York while working on her debut EP. She raps and sings in Portuguese over boomy electric kick drums and Latin percussion. Her sound is fierce and fun, conjuring images of hot summer dance parties.
