From Madorna, Portugal, to the world, André Silva, known as Piruka, has become a reference in Portuguese hip hop. As he himself has admitted, Piruka was born with a silver spoon in his mouth; however, life had a way to show him a harsher reality. In time, the silver spoon turned to tin and the musician then turned it to shiny platinum. Once referred to as “The Portuguese boy worth millions” he changed the music scene when he released his album AClara and he has since reached an absolutely astronomical number of combined views/streams on online platforms. Tracks like “Louco”, “Se Eu Não Acordar Amanhã”, “Salto Alto”, “Não Se Passa Nada”, “Os Meus Putos”, “Prova Dos 9” and “Impossíveis”, amongst many others, are sung in a hymnlike manner by his fans. Piruka has received countless invitations to take part in projects, some of which are beyond the Portuguese borders, namely in Brazil. In spite of his success, Piruka won’t rest on his laurels, keen to continue to beat records and, above all, to give back to his loyal fanbase. It’s in that spirit that, in 2020, he released Coroa, his latest album, successful thanks to hit tracks like “Louco” (feat. Bluay and produced by Rusty), “Impossíveis” (produced by Tom Enzy) and “Até Já” (produced by Lazuli). Piruka’s most recent single, “Fe”, was released in 2021 and shows an artist thirsty for more. There are clearly plenty of reasons to want the front row at Piruka’s concert when Sumol Summer Fest returns this year.
