Jhama is a nationally recognized singer, hitmaker, and actor from Rio de Janeiro's Vidigal favela, and his talent has propelled him to the forefront of Brazilian pop music. His journey began over 12 years ago, where he honed his skills as a member of the group Trio Ternura, scoring hits like "Fases do amor" and "Se liga na Preta."
Jhama's breakout moment came in 2016 when his composition "Essa Mina é Louca," co-performed with Anitta, became a national sensation. This success launched his solo career, and he hasn't looked back since.
Jhama's signature style lies in his unique blend of funkeado – a genre derived from carioca funk – and his own artistic perspective.
He breathes new life into existing hits, taking them on stage with an irresistible swagger and authenticity. His solo achievements are equally impressive.

Tracks like "Pijhama" (over 1.5 million Spotify streams), "Eu Quero Que Se F..." (550,000+ Spotify streams), and "Parei" (featuring 3030) showcase his songwriting prowess and captivating performance style. He's even collaborated with the Pineapple project on "Quanto vale" and dropped the infectious "Vai Gamar" from his upcoming EP.
