RIP FUNK OSTENTAçÃO

Brasil is currently not only experiencing a political crisis , its economy is in trouble too. And there´s probably no Brasilian music genre that is more effected by the money crash than funk ostentação. The São Paulo version of baile funk, which rose to prominence with artists such as MC Guimé or MC João displaying their new wealth in music videos full of gold chains, raining cash and expensive cars has lost its meaning. Brasilian researchers Renato Barreiros and Renato Meirelle show in this short, yet informative documentary, what went wrong. If you don´t understand Portuguese, switch to English subtitles in the Youtube settings.

NO FLUXO!

A new documentary on baile funk in São Paulo was just released, looking at the fluxo parties that are regular events on the streets of Brazil´s megacity. These parties have a parallel with Rio de Janeiro’s baile funk events, open-air parties that welcome the local communities and offer a place for young musicians and dancers to make their mark.

The film shows the significance of these fluxo parties to local people and how the funk scene has developed in São Paulo, moving from its focus on funk ostentação (“show off” funk) to new styles like passinho do romano, and also highlights upcoming producers and deejays including MC Bin Laden and MC Brinquedo.
