Bonde Do Role to tour North America

BONDE DO ROLE TO TOUR NORTH AMERICA IN SUPPORT OF THEIR DEBUT LP, WITH LASERS, OUT NOW ON DOMINO RECORDS

Bonde Do Role, the riotous funk carioca trio from Curitiba, Brazil are taking their incendiary live show on the road for an extensive tour of North America this fall. The group, comprised of MC’s Marina Vello, Pedro D’Eyrot, and DJ/producer Rodrigo Gorky, are quickly becoming synonymous with the rising baile funk movement garnering attention from outside of Brazil. Most recently opening for CSS and Diplo, these headlining dates will surely incite any audience into a frenzy.


More info on Bonde Do Role:
Since forming two years ago and signing to Diplo’s Mad Decent label in 2006 – with the ‘Melo Do Tabaco EP’ prompting some big waves and little earthquakes among Very Cool People – they’ve teamed up with Domino for ‘Å With Lasers’, a debut album which bangs through 13 songs in half an hour. It is not exactly an album which beats around the bush. Nor do the band’s members pull their punches. “Bonde Do Role is the ultimate, stupid party,” Marina announces, defiantly. “It’s not music which is there to make you want to break something.”

Press on With Lasers:
“Bonde Do Role is taking the world by storm with their filthy Paulista funk. In the process, they might just re-draw the map of Brazil.” – THE FADER

“Their “Gasolina” (not the Daddy Yankee song), with deadpan women’s voices turning “Afrika Bambaataa” into a percussive hook, ought to have dance floors everywhere chanting, “Boom-cha-cha, chicky chicky cha.” – NEW YORK TIMES



“A mutant strain of baile funk – a whiplash-inducing mix of Miami bass, samba drums, Alice in Chains riffs, and lascivious rapping that originally hails from the favelas (shantytowns) of Rio de Janeiro.” – SPIN
