Roma rap: Meet Connect-R

EU, 25.9.2010 12:26, (Euronews)

Connect-R is the latest sensation to come out of the Romanian Hip-Hop scene. His latest single “Still” is a smash hit, number one in the Romanian charts Singer-songwriter, dancer, actor, and producer, Connect-R is eclectic, mixing rap, hip-hop, soul, R’n‘B and reggae.

He told euronews “My name is my aim; connecting people, music, states of mind; this idea was my starting point. I never studied music, but I play the piano and sing with no formal training, and it’s effortless. Undoubtedly it’s something I was born with, and that’s a big advantage I think. But I grew up with a completely different kind of music around me; Chuck Berry, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, lots of rock and roll, blues, and jazz. I think that what I’m doing now is the result of a fusion, between the basic natural talent of my nation and the musical education my father gave me.”

His fusion is very commercial, and he is not ashamed of that. It is part of his masterplan.

But it does not stop him getting a message across, like when “Burning Love” was recently named Romania’s Song of the Year.
