Samba, Gafieria and Bossa Nova with a pinch of jazz, soul and rap. These are the elements that give the Brazilian band Sandlia de Prata a unique sound. Their members mix the tradition of samba using their drums, repiniques and beats with modern and sophisticated arrangements, creating a sound that is both rhythmic and solid, which is being called Samba Pesado Heavy Samba.
The repertoir is composed of original songs as well as reinterpretations of classics from Jorge Ben Jor, Gilberto Gil, Joo Bosco & Aldir Blanc, Itamar Assumpo, Bebeto, and also a particularly funky version for Paul McCartneys Check my Machine,
Sandlia de Prata was formed in So Paulo back in 2003 and it has released two albums: Sandlia de Prata (2006) and Samba Pesado (2009). Lead by the charismatic Ully Costa (singer), the band is also composed of Dado Tristo (keyboards), Carlinhos Creck (bass), Sandro Lima (acoustic guitar and guitar), Paulinho Sorriso (drums), Tito Amorim (percussion), Joo Lenhari (trumpet), Jorge Neto (tuba) and Marcelo Valezi (sax). For 9 years they have been shaking up the dancefloors in Brazil, while sharing the stage with very important names of Brazilian music like Elza Soares, Jair Rodrigues and the rapper Emicida , as guests.
It is impossible not to dance with Sandlia de Prata. The fluency, the rapport, and Ully Costas charisma and stage presence ensures the groove and the fun, transforming each of their presentations into true parties.
