Mixing funk, dark soul and Brasilian folk pop, Liniker e os Caramelows rises as one of Brazil’s most intriguing new musical phenomena. In 2015 soon after its founding, the group became internationally recognized as their first EP became a viral hit scoring over 18 million views on Youtube. The rewarded debut album, “Remonta” (2016), finally sealed the deal and secured the group’s place on international stages and in people’s hearts. 

The group’s figurehead, Liniker, is one of Brazil’s first openly transgender singers, and is known as a human rights advocate. In 2018, the artist was given a United Nations recognition for the advocacy work for equality of sexual and genre minorities.
