Brazilian Funk Singer Sarah Roston Releases Debut Single “Eu Incomodo” (I Bother)

Sarah Roston releases her debut single “Eu Incomodo” (I Bother) globally today via Audio Network.


Equally at home singing samba, jazz and ballads to funk-heavy pop hits, Roston has worked closely on the EP with Ed Côrtes, an internationally respected Brazilian musician and composer who’s worked on a variety of projects such as film soundtracks (including the Oscar-nominated ‘City Of God’), contemporary dance and ballet music, as well as chart-topping Brazilian pop hits. Thanks to a serendipitous introduction while Sarah was working on a play about Amy Winehouse, the two started working together to explore and express their own interpretations of Brazilian music. In 2019, after a chance meeting between Ed and their music team, it was clear to Audio Network that Sarah was a major talent in waiting.

Taken from her debut EP of the same name, “Eu Incomodo” (I Bother) is a melting pot of funk, soul, reggaetón and traditional Brazilian rhythms and melodies, all brought to life through Roston’s raw vocal talent.

Filmed in downtown São Paulo, the video is a marked challenge to the country’s far-right political regime, and draws inspiration from the neglected communities currently under threat. Scenes of homelessness and the “favela” in the Paraisópolis neighbourhood are shown throughout; capturing the unity, positivity and happiness that can exist in those spaces despite extremely challenging circumstances. The result is a message of optimism and comradery, spirited by the groove-based music and dance choreography.
