Roberto Carlos Lange (born 1980), better known by his stage name Helado Negro, is an American musician.
As a South Florida native, born to Ecuadorian immigrants and based in Brooklyn, Roberto Carlos Lange's upbringing provides essential elements to his songwriting, including his consistently bilingual lyrics in English and Spanish. Lange's music under the moniker Helado Negro can be characterized as lyrically personal and political avant-pop music. Through his work, Lange has cultivated an untraditional approach to song-craft that places his voice on an adventurous musical impulse without shying away from familiar pop appreciation.
Helado Negro is now signed to and released his 2019 album This Is How You Smile through RVNG Intl., a Brooklyn-based music institution. This Is How You Smile received an 8.5 rating and Best New Music from Pitchfork.
