MC Tati Quebra-Barraco aka house wrecker is a leading artist of the so-called “Rio Funk”. The genre devloped during the 1990s in Brasilian favelas and is harder, rougher and more aggressive than northern American hip hop. That said, the name “funk” is misleading: Rio Funk has nothing to with the funk genre outside Brasil. It is a collage made of fast, hammering beats that resemble the “Miami Bass” genre by using drum rhythms and samples from pop music and rap.
The concert is organized in collaboration with Ladyfest Esslingen.
