Getúlio Abelha (BR)
Brazilian multi-artist Getúlio Abelha effortlessly switches between pop, electronic, and forró traditions. The artist’s music, dance, and video creations address contemporary issues, politics, bodies, gender, and critique of conservatism. Getúlio is an absolute explosion on stage, whether because of his vibrant and striking outfits or because of the imposing spectacle he puts on along with his coordinated dancers that fuse pop music with a punk mentality and vice versa. Getúlio Abelha’s lyrics are abrasive and his tone is sarcastic and critical, which causes us to dance, think, and resist.
