Bio


Free Rock is how we define our work. The same way Jazz had Free Jazz it is the time for Rock to have Free Rock. A movement that set bases in Improvisation, but related deeply to influences in Rock. Songs and live performances, specially during improvisations, might flirt with other genres of music, but still feels like listening to alternative rock. It is always an emotional and fresh experience to listen and watch the band perform.

Usually the live performances have moments of improvisation that might end up grouping songs of the artist in one piece, which makes it pretty unique. It's Rock, Post-Rock, Indie Rock but mostly Free Rock.

Not always, but most times, Lele Gins is accompanied by guests. Normally musicians who appreciate and love the ideas derived from movements such as Jazz and Dub, but grew up as self-taught artists and started Rock Bands at really young ages. Artists that even when flirting with other genres of music show clearly on their surfaces that their biggest influence come Independent Rock.

Lele Gins is the solo project of Lele Melamed, former guitar player, and lead composer, of the Brazilian punk-pop band Cinedisco(Seminal Independent band of Rio de Janeiro 00's alternative rock movement). The band had various important appearances on MTV Brazil and other Tv channels, getting recognition not only by the local independent media. Although Cinedisco only existed for 4 years, they realeased 3 Cds(One in its second pressing) and 1 DVD. All of them were put out by the most important independent labels of that country(Manifesto Discos, Urubuz Records and Ideal Records).

Disbanding in 2007, Lele Melamed decide to start a new project, which he call Lele Gins. This was the first chance of the composer to show his passion for Post-Rock, bands like Explosions In The Sky and American Football, and Jazz, specially the idea of Improvisation. In 2010, He moved to New York and started working with artists from the city, creating new pieces to the so called "Free Rock".
