"My favourite band from the new generation of Brazil" GILLES PETERSON, 6MUSIC

“Polyphonic harmony, rock riffing and brass-led big band samba… if the Mamas and Papas had made a concept album in Brazil it might have sounded like this” THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

"I can't get enough of this... the whole album is just luscious" CERYS MATTHEWS, 6MUSIC


Post-tropical polyphonic populists from Minas Gerais in Brazil, Graveola draw influence from kitsch pop radio and dusty classical vinyls to create a sound they call “carnival-cannibalism”.

On “Eu preciso de um liquidificador” Graveola mix the canon of 20th century Brazilian music – in particular samba, bossa, tropicalia and the folk stylings of Minas Gerais’s most famous son Milton Nascimento - with folk, jazz, funk, Latin, baroque and blues influences to create a joyfully exuberant set with which brings to mind the playful psychedelic pop of the legendary Os Mutantes.

Like Mutantes, Graveola combine these influences within the same song via arresting arrangements, whilst swooning harmonies, buzzing melodies and hooks-a-plenty ensure “Eu preciso de um liquidificador” is a “pop” album of the quirkiest order.

Graveola history:
The band emerged from the Faculty of Philosophy and Humanities at Belo Horizonte University, in 2004, originally as a trio mixing classics of Brazilian music with pop songs and, according to founder Luiz Gabriel Lopes, finding inspiration in “lyricism, debauchery and TV jingles”.

At that time, their lack of instruments and musical training led them to incorporate household goods and toy instruments into their sound, hence their full name Graveola e o Lixo Polifônico (Graveola and the polyphonic garbage.) Around 2005 and 2006 new members joined, their numbers swelled and their sound blossomed and by 2008 they were ready to record their debut album. Eagerly welcomed by the Brazilian music press the band performed many shows around Brazil and recently came to Europe for shows in autumn 2012. Mais Um Gringo, the head of Mais Um Discos, recalls seeing Graveola for the first time in Belo Horizonte in 2010: “Their performance blew me away - a perfect storm of chaos and groove, with six, seven, maybe eight members on stage performing pop vignettes that morphed into baroque jazz pieces then rock freak-outs - intoxicating stuff”.
