Post-tropical polyphonic-alists from Minas Gerais, Graveola draw influence from kitsch pop radio and dusty classical vinyls to create what they call “carnival-cannibalism” and are touring to support their debut EP for Mais Um, the ‘Farewell EP’, available from iTunes here
Mixing the canon of 20th century Brazilian music with folk, jazz, funk, baroque and blues, Graveola combine samba, bolero and bossa rhythms with tropicalia and psychedelic influences which then extend into loose instrumental improvisations, often all in the same song. Album ‘Eu preciso de um liquidificador’ will be released January 2013.
