11 tracks, 11 attempts for gringo to become a funkiero.
The album is all about baile funk, but from a bit different, fun perspective. Every tune has a huge amount of samples – some unrecognisable, some are pretty obvious. There was no intention to hide them – that is absolutely acceptable in the favelas. That‘s what a gringo would want, right – to be accepted inna di ghetto:) Anyways, Gringo de Janeiro – a warm, simple and fun experience. No hidden messages, no mind penetrations, just pure tropical entertainment. Enjoy!
