Biography

Inspired by the tradition of great italian songwriters of 70’s and 80’s, Etnia Supersantos restart the works, modernizing and personalizing that spirit of adventure.
It 's a friendly and bubbly music, topped here and there with some witty remarks that makes of simplicity its style; an artistic itinerary without gravity and made with very syncopated groove.
The sound of Supersantos is a mixture of folk, pop, blues, dance, 80s, reggae, rocksteady and swing that converges in one direction: the Song, the bad Song, the crazy Song, the super Song…
The melodies and lyrics written by Bruno Damiani fight in an attempt to bring social issues, frivolity and poetry to a genuine carefree sound. His mission is to mix text and sound, to find harmonies and choruses. The glue that holds together all these apparently irreconcilable elements is the idea, the sound and personality of the band. The Supersantos define themselves "adventurers of music”.
The long ranks allowed the band to perform and win prizes in various situations, from clubs to various events and contests across Italy. Strong communication skills of the band turns into solar events, in a mixture of rhythm and irony with a good public’s response.
In 2009 they won a collaboration offered as a prize by the independent label “La Fabbrica " during the final step of the contest “Marte live”. In July of that year, after several demos, they recorded their first CD “Arlecchino Cinema”, in the recording studio of “Adesiva Discografica” Label in Milan, under the artistic direction of Paolo Iafelice (De Andrè, Capossela, Silvestri, Pacifico ...).
