Star of Netflix documentary Amar Elo, Emicida has emerged as a true Brazilian music contender over the last year following the release of his breakout track É Tudo Pra Ontem, with the participation of Gilberto Gil.  Tonight he presents the full Amar Elo theatrical experience.

Known across Brazil and beyond for his freestyling prowess and impressive rap-battle track record, Emicida has emerged as one of the country’s most influential cultural figures, speaking and rapping candidly about Afro-Brazilian identity and the social climate in his homeland.

Emicida calls Amar Elo project a ‘social experiment’. The album, inspired by Brazilian poetry, the idea of emotional and spiritual maturity and the idea of unity through love creates a style he coins ‘Neo-samba’.

‘In the past 12 months Emicida has emerged as one of Brazil’s most influential cultural figures. He is a rapper on a mission to recover Brazil’s black history’  Guardian
