Johnny Hooker is “a woman in rage in the body of a man with eyes full of tears”, this is how the singer and composer from Pernambuco won the Brazilian Music Award for Best Singer and who took the musical market by surprise with his first solo album “I’m Gonna Make a Macumba to Tying You Up, Damn!”, voted by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the best albums of the year.
In ‘Coração’ Johnny mixes samba, brega, frevo, guitarado and axé in a reaffirmation of the country’s identity, making a song that is admittedly northeastern, that challenges genres, languages ​​and questions the very identity of Brazilian music. It is a concert to dance and to vibrate. It is a celebration of Brazilian and Latin music.

If in “I’m Gonna Make a Macumba to Bind You, Cursed!” The singer and composer suggested a tour of passionate love stories against Recife and a sound palette that was celebrated from Recife’s brega, to blues and until Frevo, now ‘Heart’ takes a turn between Tropicalismo and the American Blue-eyed Soul. “As if Caetano Veloso’s” Transcendental Cinema “and David Bowie’s” Young Americans “had a child in Recife,” Johnny says.

Hooker’s songs became known for soundtracks of audiovisual works such as the award-winning cult hit “Tatuagem” by Hilton Lacerda and TV Globo’s soap operas, “Geração Brasil” and “Babilonia” and the Justice series. The disc tour has already covered 20 Brazilian capitals, as well as presentations in Lisbon, Porto, Berlin and Barcelona.
