Biography

Groove, rock, Brazilian music, psychedelic, dub, ethnic brasilian music (candomblé , maracatu,
samba), experimental instruments and avant-garde stuff are Nancy Viégas and Radiola´s music
influences. They are respected artists from Brazilian musical scenery, now playing together.
They came from Salvador/Bahia, a state in the northeastern area of Brazil, that is very
important to Brazilian art . Some important names like João Gilberto, Caetano Veloso, Jorge
Amado also came from there. Nowadays, Bahia has a very rich popular culture and an
expressive alternative music and rock scene in a contrast with a big popular party, the
Carnival, that had involved the interests of the local tourism and culture over the last 20 years.
Nancy and Radiola are outside limits, just making their music by independent and creative
ways. Their concert is expressive and dynamic, exploring not only of international styles but of
Brazilian folkloric styles with urban and actual approach, inspired by unrest of Tropicalia
Movement and Cinema Novo, important Brazilian art movements from the 60/70’s.
