    • Synopsis
    • Favela on Blast shows the culture surrounding “Funk Carioca,” a musical rhythm that mixes the American electronic funk of the 1980’s with the most diverse influences of Brazilian music. Bombastic rhythms coming from the Miami Bass and loops and samples are united to powerful rap vocal using Brazilian slang. This is music that is designed to be listened to as loud as possible and with high bass pumping through the tropical nights of Rio. It’s music that is crass, dirty, violent and loud – but regardless, it is the soundtrack of their lives.
