avatar for Roge

Roge represents the new generation of artists of the Brazilian Popular Music movement. His sound is the carioca face of Brazil. He plays a groovy kind of samba and moves effortlessly from bossa nova to samba to reggae with the ease of a prolific composer.
His compositions create a fusion of all these rhythms producing a unique and fresh sound. Aside Arlindo Cruz (one of his most frequent songwriting partners), they composed the theme for the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio and the 2014 World Cup's Mascot. Another frequent partner is Seu Jorge (well known for his 'Life Aquatic' project), who recorded 7 songs composed by Roge on his most recently album, 'Musicas Para Churrasco' (2012).
Roge has released four solo works ('Rogê' in 2003, 'Brasil em Brasa' in 2008, 'Fala Geral' in 2010, and the brand new 'Brenguele', produced by Kassin, from the project RED HOT IN RIO) and over the years has sought to create a sound that synthesizes the purity of each rhythm by intertwining and merging MPB references. His music is life affirming and appealing, a laid back kind of samba that emerges as the soundtrack of modern and flourishing Rio de Janeiro.
After completing his 3rd appearance at SXSW Music Festival (2011, 2012 and 2013), he debuted in New York in march 2013 at the traditional Joe's Pub.
Roge is going to be the musical “ambassador” for ESPN’s 2014 World Cup coverage taking place in Brazil, additionally his involvement with ESPN will launch in their coverage of the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in june 2013. They have been capturing his lifestyle, backstage, sound checks and live performances since the beginning of this year, and the material will be used for storytelling about the Brazilian culture and in other edited elements that feature his music. Roge will be featured on US ESPN and their international networks.
