Cinco Rios


Cinco Rios (in English “five rivers”), define their sound as contemporary Brazilian music influenced by British and alternative rock, with lyrics in Portuguese which search out poetic and melancholic images. Many images may be found among waters and sonorous harmonies, like a joining together of many tributaries. Their sound promises the richness of a river, the confluence of styles, rhythms, and melodic ideas, giving this band from Minas Gerais Brazil an authentic sound of their own. Read more on Last.fm
Cinco Rios (in English “five rivers”), define their sound as contemporary Brazilian music influenced by British and alternative rock, with lyrics in Portuguese which search out poetic and melancholic images. Many images may be found among waters and sonorous harmonies, like a joining together of many tributaries. Their sound promises the richness of a river, the confluence of styles, rhythms, and melodic ideas, giving this band from Minas Gerais Brazil an authentic sound of their own. With their songs coming from diverse sources of creativity, the five “rivers” who make up the band seek, via the integration of their experiences, memories and individual techniques, to give a volume and personality to songs whose uniqueness lies at the meeting of mpb (música popular brasileira = Brazilian popular music), and the power of rock. Making up the band are violinists and guitarists João Eduardo e Tiago Capute, drummer Fabrício Galvani, bass player Bruno César, and pianist and singer Maurício Silva Jr. If the influences of the members run from Chico Buarque to Neil Young, the affinities of music apreciation turn toward bands and musicians like Radiohead, Nick Cave, REM, Coldplay, Wilco, Legião Urbana and Los Hermanos. In some manner, there are vestiges of such bands in the music of Cinco “Rios”. These are expressed in combination with the personal touches of each member, “drain” into the band’s light and melancholic harmonies. In August of 2006, at the Teatro Marília, Cinco Rios gave a performance debuting the release of their first CD, Ecos da cidade.

Recorded at Casa Antiga studio, the CD includes 13 tracks. The songs of this inaugural album reveals the band’s sound, melancholic and charistically urban at the same time. Beyond the final reverberations in the local media of the state of Minas Gerais, Ecos da cidade was cited as the best independent album of 2006 by the magazine Revista Laboratório Pop and the website Dynamite Online. Also, in 2006, a song by Cinza (Maurício Silva Jr./João Eduardo) gained the title of Best Song of the Year in the contest on (JB On line), Jornal do Brasil’s website. Read more on Last.fm.
