O Rappa – Mar de Gente

Ok, so we’re usually all about the small, unsigned bands but this is too good not to share…

O Rappa is a Brazilian Rock/Reggae/Funk band that have been steadily making waves in the industry since 1993 – and now it’s time to bring a little bit of Brazil to the UK!

Filled with rich beats, catchy bass lines and edgy vocals, their songs are beautifully crafted. The rhythmic pulse gets inside your head and when you crank up the volume, there is no way you’ll resist dancing… or at least bopping a limb.

The language barrier doesn’t mean a thang, these guys are immense – go check them out!
