The essence of Samba, Rap, Maracatú, Afro-Beat, Pop, Funk and Reggae – this is EMERSOUND, 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 "suingue", similar to that of Jorge Benjor. Araújo combines the traditional rhythms with modern Hip Hop and other Hispanic music styles and creates his EMERSOUND, a very special, urban and extremely energetic fusion of Samba, Reggae, Rap and Funk – music to drum up enthusiasm with his audience.
Emerson Araujo has had two succesful 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 currently part of Peter Fox„ drumlineschool BÄM, among others.
