#CROSSCULTURES: Karol Conka

Chances are you recognize Karol from her opening performance in the 2016 Olympics hosted in Brazil. “For many outside of Brazil, it was their first time hearing Conka “deliver uplifting rhymes in Portuguese over booming bass lines wrapped around raw percussion (RS).”

Born in Curitiba, Brazil; her music interest peaked early while exchanging poetry she wrote with a friend. Since highschool, she’s broken barriers in Brazil’s music scene and changed the dynamic of Black Female Artists in South America. She breaks the unconvential habits of dealing with self esteem issues and racism, and has become one of Brazil’s biggest pop stars.

Check out É o Poder (It’s the Power) and get into her bigger-than-life personality!
