Just sharing some great Zuzuka Poderosa (Poderosa means POWER!) happenings.  By the way, the quote on the title of this post was taken from this interview Zuzuka did with Ignite the Sound – I love it.

Last month, Zuzuka was on Telemundo 47’s ‘El Show de Jackie‘ speaking in Spanish about her Carioca Bass.  Later that night, on Brazilian National Television (via Canal O Globo), a profile aired on Zuzuka for Beco Dranoff’s ‘Beyond Ipanema‘ series.  Check out the trailer – hope to share the piece soon.

Zuzuka’s #1 on the list! (plus lots of other new #worldwild acts I had not heard of, sans Bajofondo):

We begin with something of a cheat, as “Seda” was recorded in New York, produced in San Francisco, and remixed in Miami. But though she now lives in Brooklyn, performer Zuzuka Poderosa was born in Rio de Janeiro, of mixed Brazilian and Indonesian heritage. She calls her rhythm-heavy dance music “carioca bass,” and it bears the distinctive sound of Rio’s humanity-packed, beat-pulsing clubs and streets.

This kind of world music meets raucous electro fusion is something you don’t see everyday, and stands out as unique in a sea of cookie-cutter big room house tracks.” – Your EDM

When you add Zuzuka’s sultry vocals and powerful desire to create “interracial music babies” into the equation, it’s pop gone crazy, a freewheeling, next-generation party.” – Brooklyn Bodega

Zuzuka Poderosa’s bio is a lot like the story of global bass music itself. The Brazil-born, Brooklyn-based bass vocalist is inspired by baile funk but her music has taken on the flavors of everywhere she has been and everything she has heard. Now she spreads her ass-shaking hybrid inspirations around the world.” – MTV IGGY
