Backstage Promotions presents GABRIEL O PENSADOR live at The Garage!

A pioneer for the hip hop movement in Brazil, rap superstar Gabriel o Pensador hits London with his current show Sem Crise (‘No Crises’ in English) showing his versatility, not only as a rapper, but as the great songwriter, musician story-teller and communicator that he is.

In his set list he brings many of his hits from a career spanning 25 years such as Retrato de um Playboy (1993), 2345meia78 and Cachimbo da paz (1997), Astronauta (1999) and Até Quando (2001); as well as songs from his latest album Sem Crise , like Surfista Solitário, his version of the 1980 Jorge Ben Jor hit, and Linhas tortas, a song that tells his story – from a classroom kid writing essays, all the way through to becoming “The Thinker” or “O Pensador” in Portuguese, as he has been commonly known as by fans across the Lusophone world.

A unique opportunity to see Gabriel o Pensador in the atmosphere and intimate setting of The Garage. Take a trip to Rio and into the head of Gabriel as he blasts out his ideas that reflect, not only the collective consciousness of Brazil, but of moderns societies and their many common challenges. From Brazil to Cape Verde, Portugal to Angola, Gabriel has been unique in unifying the voice of these nations through his music for over two decades.
