Liniker’s sparkling presence and the band’s Afro-Brazilian take on soul and funk get even the shyest of audiences on their feet. Her expressive vocals challenge the prevailing social, gender and political norms – for to be poor, black and queer is Liniker’s source of power, which gives voice to marginal existences of all kinds. This group of musicians from both banks of the Amazon, headed by a 23-year-old trans artist with African roots, manages it all with lashings of colour and a firm belief in a world in which everyone can make their dreams come true. For Liniker and her Caramelows, there can be no rainbow too brightly coloured – so dress accordingly and come and join us for an evening to remember.
Liniker Barros, vocals; Eder Araújo, sax and flute; Fernando Trz, keyboards; Maria Nehme, percussion; Pericles Zuanon, drums; Rafael Barone, bass; Renata Éssis, backing vocals; William Zaharanszki, guitar
“A powerfully expressive voice assuredly flowing through songs dripping with soul, funk and Afro-Brazilian elements, personified through an enigmatic androgynous look and driven by the tightest band from either side of the Amazon.” WOMEX
