Capicua was born in Porto in the 1980s, discovered Hip Hop culture in the 1990s, and became a rapper in the 2000s. With a background in sociology, she eventually made music her primary profession and is known for her emotionally charged, feminist, and politically engaged lyrics. Her discography includes two mixtapes and three solo albums, a remix album, two children’s book albums, a collaborative Portuguese-Brazilian album, and a live EP. In “SG Gigante,” a tribute album to Sérgio Godinho (2022), she served as a curator. Over the last decade, she has been involved in concerts, workshops, and social projects, gaining a diverse audience and collaborating with various Lusophone artists. Notable is her acclaimed work as a lyricist for various performers and her role as a columnist for Visão magazine (2015-2021) and now for Jornal de Noticias. She also released her first book, “Aquário,” through Companhia das Letras in 2022.
