In 2011 Criolo released “Nó na orelha,” an album highly praised both in Brazil and outside that showed his versatility as the rapper, singer and composer.

Now with his new full-length work “Convoque seu buda” he further enhances this ability. Songs on his third LP mix different elements of Brazilian music such as hip-hop, samba, reggae and rock. Criolo has also become more mature musically.

With its direct message criticizing the police, racism, consumerism and even the World Cup “Esquiva da Esgrima” is a good introduction to disk.

But make no mistake: hear the entire disc – which is available to stream on YouTube and download for free on Criolos official website.

You can also find Criolo on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, YouTube and Instagram.
