"Favela On Blast" Movie Review

That movie was bloody brilliant. Highly recommended. Great insight into Brazilian "Baile Funk" music, this actually totally explains the weird amounts of traffic I was getting off Google from Brazil for my "funk" ad campaign... the genre is more like hardcore miami bass dubstep hip hop battle music with scorching insulting Portuguese lyrics than funk if you get the drift. Also interesting to see how the music is made for specific favela's and doesn't travel to other favelas; like whereby a popular MC couldn't travel and play outside his favela due to risk of death.

Best quote from the film: "Bass my friend, people like bass" 🙂
