Gulli’s music has always been about the people and for the people. Empowerment of the underprivileged, equality, justice, education for all and a world without borders.
Of Mozambican descent, Milton Gulli was born and raised in the suburbs of Lisbon, Portugal. He has also lived in Saudi Arabia, Madeira and Mozambique. As an artist, he is deeply immersed in Lusophone sounds, as well as Lisbon’s contemporary African music scene.
His first project Philharmonic Weed began in 1997, mixing reggae, funk, soul and African music with conscious lyrics, positive attitude and activism. In 2005 he joined the veteran Portuguese funk soul band Cool Hipnoise as lead singer and co-founded the 12-piece afrobeat orchestra Cacique´97, releasing two highly-acclaimed albums ‘Cacique´97’ (2009) and ‘We Used To Be Africans’ (2016).
Milton also explored dub, reggae and hiphop with The Grasspoppers crew. He has performed with Prince Wadada, Kimi Djabate, Mercado Negro, Marcelo D2 and featured on albums by Rocky Marsiano, IZEM, Sam The Kid, Sagas, XEG and others.
A decade ago Milton Gulli moved to Mozambique, where he worked with rappers Simba and Azagaia, also producing albums for the newly established independent label Kongoloti Records. Additionally he produced albums by Deltino Guerreiro, Ras Skunk, Spirits Indigenous and performs regularly on stage with Azagaia, Simba, DRP, TP50 and others.
