Bio

The quintet formed by the musicians Marcus Moraes (guitar), Alexandre Macarrão (bass), Marcelo Lima (bandolim, guitar), Rafael Black (drums) and Léo Barbosa (percussion) got together in 2001 with the proposal of presenting new arrangements for brazilian famous songs, besides their own compositions, made by a contemporary interpretation of popular music. Their sound is characterized by the particular timbre of the instruments, and the musicians’ own styles. The debut CD “Marambaia” was launched in 2006. “We’ve got the choro as a style and way of expression more than as a musical genre. We play every kind of music (frevo, baião, samba) in the choro language”, explain Marcelo Lima, Marambaia’s leader. Mixing several influences, they include in their repertory, besides new compositions, songs from famous song writers such as Jacob do Bandolim, Waldir Azevedo, Egberto Gismonti, Wagner Tiso, Astor Piazzola and Gilberto Gil. In the accords, it’s possible to recognize, also, a bit of Beatles and Deep Purple between a choro and a frevo. With an irreverent performance, they present a happy and enthusiastic show. MARAMBAIA PRESENTATIONS AND PROJECTS Every year, Marambaia is included in the Clube do Choro de Brasília’s project called “Prata da Casa”, in which groups formed in Brasilia have the opportunity to perform for a night. Clube do Choro is the most important choro’s house in Brasília and one of the most influent of Brazil. The group has also performed in many other places in Brasília. Besides, they started, in 2003, a social project with students of public schools in Brasília, supported by the Brasilia Culture Office, playing and teaching the choro history to about 3000 high school students.
