Pure essence of Samba, Rap, Maracatú, Afro-Beat, Pop, Funky and Reggae- was created by the charismatic Brazilian singer Emerson Araújo.
He started his career as percussionist at the Samba school “Vai Vai”, the multiple winner of the Sao Paulo carnival. Though his music is rooted in Samba, it is quite individual and full of swing, similar to that of Jorge Benjor.
Emerson combines the traditional rhythms with modern Hip Hop and other Latino music styles and creates his EMERSOUND, a very special, urban and extremely energetic fusion of Samba, Reggae, Rap and Funky – music to drum up enthusiasm with his audience.
Emerson Araujo has had two successful careers in Brazil and Chile already. Now he finally relocated to Berlin for good, ready to take Europe with his band EMERSOUND by storm.
He has been performing in a number of different projects, and is among others currently part of Peter Fox drumlineschool BÄM.
Brought up in Sao Paulo, with roots in Colombia, Emerson Araujo has always played music that transcended musical genres. After arriving in Berlin and learning German, Emerson experimented with German lyrics as well. On his new album Musica Propria however, he returned to his native tongue. Still, there will be bonus tracks entirely in German.
Emersound‘s new album Musica Propria was released in 2016.
The highlight, of course, is to experience the irresistible EMERSOUND grooves live in a concert. It is a rhythm full of verve that carries off everybody, a modern music eluding all Samba clichés.
