Released on May 25, 2017, "Galanga Livre" is Rincon Sapiência's long-awaited debut album, which intensified the rapper's immersion in the universe of African music, bringing black influences from capoeira to blues, from the brazilian côco to the tropicália movement and the afrobeat, permeated by the rock and roll vein that characterizes Rincon's work. Among the songs, an exaltation of the afrodescendence, as you can see on the album name, a reference to the mythical character Galanga, an African monarch who, after being enslaved and brought to Brazil, was able to free himself and other slaves, getting known as Chico Rei.
