OneBeat is proud to welcome a new band we want to support.
Lavoisier are Patrícia and Roberto, a musical couple originally from Portugal who have been living and playing in Berlin. Until now i attended 3 concerts in small bars in Neukölln and Kreuzberg, and there´s a very special vibe and feel to the way they play and present their music. Among their original songs, portuguese and brazilian cover versions, they also sing wonderful songs from Nina Simone or Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil´s “Alabama Song”. We present 2 of their songs for now and there´s more you can listen to on their myspace page, though this small selection of their songs doesn’t do them complete justice. It´s a live thing!
They relate to something most of you haven´t heard of.. to ‘Tropicalismo’ and ‘Antropofagia’. It is the way of reproducing music that represented the Brazilian modernist movement in the 1960’s – Tropicalismo – headed by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. Read more about it on their artist page.
Stay tuned for more songs and events dates from Laviosier. Welcome aboard Lavoisier!
