Born in 1987, Thiago P-tróleo is from Barata, an area in the suburbs of Realengo, Rio de Janeiro. The work of the singer, actor, composer and producer is very eclectic, as it ranges from samba to rap, funk and samba-rock. The artist, who recently had some of his work recorded by rapper Dughettu and Vou pro Sereno, also plays samba in the West side of Rio, the place they will represent on Oct 3 at Espaço Favela.
