Karoline dos Santos de Oliveira, aka Karol Conka, first set foot stage in Curitiba, Brazil at just 17 years of age. The young Curitiban MC showed just what she could do and soon enough proved that she had what it took to become one of the most distinctive voices of the modern Brazilian hip hop scene. Today, almost ten years from her stage debut and after years of hard work and underground grinding, the rapper, singer and songwriter - influenced by Brazilian Pop Music (MPB) and who dreamt of being like Lauryn Hill - has gained national recognition and status with a nomination at the 2011 Brazilian MTV Awards for the video of her soul-influenced single 'Good Night' as well as numerous performances with Brazil's hip hop legend, Marcedo D2. Her videos have over 2 million plays on youtube, thus proving her widespread appeal.
