Bonde Do Role release their first single 'Solta O Frango' on Monday the 19th of March. Recently signed to Domino, Bonde Do Role hail from Curitiba, in Southern Brazil. The band - Marina, Pedro and Gorky, create funk carioca in a rockin' way, according to sources in South America "their hip new party sound is the sound of now, taking the Bailefunk rhythms of their homeland and mashing them up, rapping in their native tongues. The band were discovered by their mentor and our favourite DJ, Diplo, who they'll be touring with in America in the Spring."
