Grooveria Electroacústica or simply Grooveria
The story of these 8 pieces brazilian Samba meets Soul and Jazz and whatever else they might enjoy collective begins way before it’s 10 years of existence.. It’s format as a collective is the result of a life filled with a very diverse musical environment.
Grooveria’s sound is a more refined version of the brazilian music most known elsewhere, having a range of musicians with such a diverse background results in an everchanging calderon of styles with only one guidance: The Groove, the pulse, the rhythm of our hearts and lives that take us to where we are drown to.
“Grooveria unites Rio (de Janeiro), São Paulo and the Samba” as famous music critic Nelson Motta put on his site.
But that’s not just it! Grooveria unites a big part of Brasil with their sound, played by musicians from several parts of Brasil with differents musical backgrounds!
In 2005, their first CD “#1” had air play in big FM stations all over Brasil, like Eldorado FM, Nova Brasil FM, and Globo FM, and had their first original “Nada Mal” included in Som Livre’s ( biggest recording company in Brasil) compilation called Soul Brasil vol 1.
In 2009, Grooveria’s first live DVD/CD distributed by Universal Music, reached top 20 for 7 weeks reaching the 12º position on week 5.
The DVD has Tuto’s long time partners Seu Jorge and Max de Castro as well as others that showed up and jammed in the end.
In 2010 Grooveria made it’s debut in European stages playing for a pulsating 3.000 crowd at Festival Maré de Agosto in Azores Islands and at Harlem Jazz Club and Festival Dia de Brasil in front of 9.000 people.
Grooveria’s sound has drown attention from the media both on Portugal and Spain having favorable reviews and interviews for newspapers and radios, TV shows and videos on music sites as Myspace Portugal.
Having said all that, i’ll “let the music speak for itself”, as the late Miles Davis would put.
