Our boy Sango has been busy in the past few weeks dropping one new thing after another. Just last week he dropped a new album SANGOZINHO (which is SO good) and now he dropped a new single "Kalimba Funk" as part of Da Rocinha 4. This series is a tribute to Rocinha, the largest favela in Brazil, which is named to be the birthplace of baile funk, one of Sango's biggest influences.

"Kalimba Funk" is everything I hoped it was going to be: it's mellow yet groovy, Baile funk spiced up with afrobeats, and just the general vibe that makes you wanna groove until you drop.

With the Da Rocinha series, it is about highlighting the history of Funk Carioca and paying homage to the creation of the funk sound. With this fourth installment, I wanted to reach out to the community of Rocinha, local areas in Rio de Janeiro and Brazil to give and receive support while I push this North American & South American sound.”
