Brazilian Hip Hop pioneer Criolo plays his first show in London for more than 2 years. Politically and culturally motivated, he is a rapper, composer and urban poet whose voice resounds with the youth exploring stories of poverty, violence and social discrimination. This show coincides with the release of Criolo's new album Convoque seu Buda, which marks a development in his unique style of mixing beats with melodic song to give a subtle but hard-hitting social commentary on the state of Brazil. Criolo draws influence from his love of samba, afrobeat and reggae and his life growing up in a favela in Sao Paulo.
