Growing up between Brazil and the West Indies, the powerful and talented Zuzuka Poderosa is now taking the world by storm from her home-base in New York City.

Zuzuka raps and rhymes in Portuguese, Spanish and English in funk-laden grooves, creating an irresistible mix that speaks to the mind as well as the body – her lyrics touch on all sorts of subjects from the sexy to the serious.

Check out our video chat with Zuzuka as we find out about the sources of her inspiration and how she puts together her fiery brand of multi-culti beats.

Zuzuka Poderosa bring her ‘carioca bass’ to the Beauty Bar February 8.
