Felipe el

Singer, Composer and Percussionist

By the age of 10, Felipe El, started to sing and play the guitar, and by the age of 15 was already a professional musician. 

His newest EP “CORONÁRIO” (oct/21) brings six tracks that show to the audience the intimacy that the composer has with his instrument, sounding soft songs with deep meaning. It’s a MPB voice and guitar album with influences from Moraes Moreira, Gilberto Gil and Djavan. His warm-cousy voice evokes a summer road trip vibe. The songs directly address the depths of loneliness, hopelessness and fears that were generated as a result of this turning point represented by the pandemic. It's a deep and beautiful record. Sweet and subtle. Those are songs that embrace people's souls. 

 

His first album, “Felipe El” (2013), presents twelve tracks which explore the Brazilian musicality with a world music and pop accent. In 2016 he released the single “Re-lógica”, showing the new face of his work, the song won the first composition festival of which he participated. 

Felipe El released, on May 2020, “Sistema” — a fervent protest against social and economic imbalance deepened by endemic corruption. The videoclip for the song was among the 10 finalists of the Fair Play Anti-Corruption Music Competiton promoted by the IACC (International Anti-Corruption Conference), which took place in South Korea. 

In 2019, he had an unexpected incursion which brought him a large growth, both musically and artistic. He participated on the cast of the musical “Os Novos Baianos”, playing the part of the great Brazilian composer Moraes Moreira. Instagram: https://bit.ly/2Gdh4Bj
