Chachi Carvalho

Chachi Carvalho

Chachi Carvalho “When rap is something you do, it’s easy to hide behind image and lies. When hip-hop is something you live, you can’t help but tell the truth.” –Charles “Chachi” Carvalho. While many rappers prefer to talk about guns and violence, Chachi Carvalho talks about the realities that all of us can relate to: everyday struggles, love for one’s family, and a passion for music. Chachi comes from a long line of musicians and singers in his Cape Verdean family, and he’s a native born-and-raised Rhode Islander, coaching football and opening a recording studio in his hometown of Pawtucket. In his career he’s won acclaim from Vibe magazine in its roundup of the best MCs state to state, and he was a two-time winner of the Wild Out Wednesdays competition on BET’s 106 & Park. Chachi was recently awarded the 2014 Cape Verdean Music Award for best hip-hop act. His two previous album releases, In Dust Real Evolution (2012) and Cape Verdean In America (2013) were both well received in numerous markets and are available on iTunes and other digital mediums. His recent wave of accomplishments includes performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the Atlantic Music Expo in Praia, Cabo Verde, the Moshito Music Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, 15 trips to Cape Verde Islands over the past 5 years, and lecture/performances at Roger Williams University, Trinity College, Providence College, and Harvard. Chachi continues to write and record new music as one of the most prominent voices on Rhode Island’s hip-hop scene, and he continues to spread his message of positivity and gratitude through song, community activism and in raising his own family. Chachi is geared up to release his 3rd and 4th official solo album releases in 2016, Rapfrohouse and Sensitive Dependence. He is a talented young man with a wealth of knowledge to share and an optimistic view on life. He would much rather count his blessings than count his problems.
