I’d like to introduce you to CARLA PRATA, a 20 years old English born and African descent singer and songwriter. Carla started writing and producing when she was only 13 year old after getting a professional microphone, an interface and a midi from her father getting even more passionate about it when she started studying music engineering in London at the age 15.
Although Carla’s career started with RnB, she also spent time in her teenage years in Angola and Lisbon which made her get not only the urban vibes from London but the African ones such as naija and dancehall riddims. That’s why now Carla Prata releases her third EP called ROOTS which is an African fusion of naija, dancehall riddims with RnB and Brazilian Funk.
The cover of ROOTS is a photo taken in London with 2 mail stamps: an English and an Angolan one. The symbolism present in this EP is the mirror of Carla’s intention to share more of herself with the public by presenting and celebrating her musical and life influences.
The EP includes 7 tracks and features the prestigious Brazilian rap group 3030 and the Angolan rapper Paulelson, and includes her latest single “OWNER”, which is in English, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0QOZWGgqe4 The lyrics of this song were carefully written in order to express as clear as possible Carla’s mindset at this stage of her life.
Even though only 2 tracks are in English this is a very international sound EP with Burna Boy and WizKid as influences as well as the
