Born in Tokyo, raised in Hong Kong, and trained in Brazil, REI CAPOEIRAP started composing with Electone when he was in Hong Kong when he was in junior high school.

After returning to Japan, while debuting as a lyricist while attending university, he devoted himself to the Brazilian traditional martial arts Capoeira at the same time, and worked hard to train Capoeira warriors under his master in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I have been to Brazil 5 times so far. What is Kapoei Wrap? It is said that he named it Kapoei Wrap because REI, a capo erista, started RAP.

He has written and arranged songs for all songs, and has released a number of songs on YouTube with the theme of Brazil. In the year of the 110th anniversary of Japanese immigrants to Brazil in 2018, he produced the song "Saú de, Saudade" and shot a music video in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This song made her first appearance at the Brazilian Festival held at Yoyogi Park in the same year. Under the slogan of "Brajiru in Japan", he has been energetically active, such as performing at an event at JICA and acting as a general moderator of a gourmet event in Oizumi Town, Gunma Prefecture, a multicultural town. We are doing it. At the end of 2019, in order to liven up the Tokyo Olympics in Brazil, the first local recording of "Baile de Tokyo" based on the music "Funk Carioca" originated from Rio's favela. And the music video for that song was produced with a large Brazilian YouTube channel. Based on the situation of this coronavirus, it was scheduled to be released in the spring, but it was postponed repeatedly, and finally it will debut in Brazil with the music video in October next month.

Today, we will send you a special set for this event, focusing on past works.
