Mr Bongo are proud to release the debut UK single 'Boa Noite' from Brazilian Hip-Hop crossover artist Karol Conka this October.

Karol Conka's sound combines traditional Brazilian music with Hip-Hop flow and trap style production. The rest of the world know this kind of sound as Baile Funk, which is actually a term which refers to parties where the music is played rather than the music. Karol performed at the Vice Creators Project in São Pualo last year and in 2011 gained national recognition in  Brazil with a nomination at the Brazilian MTV Awards. Ahead of the FIFA 2014 World Cup, this is the first in a series of special Brazilian based releases celebrating 25 years of Mr Bongo Records.
