About This Project



Karlon, born in a slum in the outskirts of Lisbon and a pioneer of Cape Verdean creole rap, runs away from the housing project to which he had been relocated. Nights of vigil are spent under a sweltering tropical heat. Among the sugarcanes, a murmur is heard. Karlon hasn’t stopped singing.  KM (Portugal) North American Premiere
