Biography

In the same way that the Rolling Stones paid homage to the masters of the Delta Blues, Brazilian band Clube do Balanço re-ignited the work of the masters of samba-rock — Jorge Ben (up to 77), Luiz Vagner, Bebeto, Roberto Carlos and Erasmo, Branca Di Neve, Marku Ribas, Orlandivo — propping up the ballroom style to the taste this new century’s audiences.

With their two albums “Swing & Samba Rock” and “Samba Incrementado” they’ve single-handedly started a movement that’s been shaking brazilian bootie for the past 6 years. They stylish sets have been acclaimed by a massive audience as they have played thousands of concerts all over Brazil.
“Swing & Samba Rock”, their first album mixes jazz, rock and soul with an irresistible samba beat. It is a development of and almost a tribute to the sound already established by the masters of samba-rock. The album is the product of what has become a cultural vibe that includes dancers, singers, DJs, musicians, producers and club promoters. And that includes a whole roster of new samba-rock bands that ensued following their success.
Balanço’s “Swing & Samba Rock” CD has a mix of old and new. They play classic tracks like “Coqueiro Verde” (composed by Roberto & Erasmo Carlos), “Palladium” (composed by Ed Lincoln and Orlandivo), “Zamba Bem” (composed by Marku Ribas), “Paz e Arroz” (composed by Jorge Ben), “Segura a Nega” (composed by Bebeto and Luis Vagner) and many other exciting tunes.
