Composer, singer, guitarist and arranger, Armando Lôbo has deep roots in traditional grounds as he constantly seeks innovation. With poetical, modern, surprisingly original songs, the author transforms themes and rhythms from his native Pernambuco into Brazilian contemporary music.

In 1998, Armando Lôbo started his solo career, moving to Rio de Janeiro to pursue musical studies and performing in Brazil and Europe. His debut album Alegria dos Homens was released in 2003.

In 2005, he has obtained a master’s degree in Music Composition from the National College of Music (UFRJ), where he developed a dissertation under the guidance of Professor Doctor João Guilherme Ripper, discussing the Carnival aesthetics in “Petruschka”, ballet by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky.

In 2008, his second solo album, Vulgar &; Sublime, was released by Delira Música.

In 2009, he has conceived and produced the multimedia show History of Time, based in Mircea Eliade and Octavio Paz writings. His Alchemical Study, a piece for symphony orchestra, was selected to close the XVIII Biennial Festival of Brazilian Contemporary Music.

In 2010, he was invited by the Brussels Jazz Orchestra to orchestrate a song from George Gershwin’s opera Porgy and Bess. In the same year, he’s received the highest Award of Brazilian Music, for the work in the Frevo Diabo orchestra.

Armando Lôbo has already composed many contemporary classical pieces and dozens of popular songs, in addition to soundtracks for documentaries and fiction films.

He is now working on the release of his third solo album, Técnicas Modernas do Êxtase.
