Linn da Quebrada – Coytada

Brazil’s favela born rap music, funk carioca (and it’s brattier offspring funk ostentação) has always been hyper sexual in it’s content, and in that respect this new single/video from Linn da Quebrada is no different (I don’t understand the lyrics but pictures speak a thousand words as they say). However the scene is also hyper masculine for the most part, largely misogynistic and sometimes homophobic, so as a trans artist Linn is certainly a game changer. Heavy on the House side, this is probably the most club friendly track from last year’s Pajubá album, and if you prefer things a little moodier then the Trap influenced JLX remix is also excellent.

I’m yet to see the Bixa Travesty documentary about Linn which came out earlier in the year, but it’s probably a great place to start if you wanted to find out more about her.
