Samba, rap, Afrobeat and soul seamlessly blend together in Criolo's versatile and grandiose orchestrations.
After being practically unknown for years, success has arrived after the Brazilian has turned 30 – and with retroactive effect. The breakthrough album Nó Na Orelha really demonstrates the superiority of Portuguese as a language for rap.
The rapper, commentator and poet Criolo exposes the problems of Brazil, from deforestation to police violence in the favelas. His legendary countryman Caetano Valoso has already recognised Criolo's role as a protester and critic of society.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
