Biography

Kid Abelha is a pop/rock band from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, formed by Paula Toller (lead vocals), George Israel (sax, guitar and vocals) and Bruno Fortunato (acoustic and eletric guitar). The group has recorded 13 studio albums, 3 live albums and 2 live DVDs. They have composed many Brazilian pop-rock hits throughout their 24-year career. They are regarded by the press and colleagues in the music business to be a real “hit factory”.

History

The group was formed in late 1981 under the name Kid Abelha & Os Abóboras Selvagens (Kid Bee and the Savage Pumpkins), with the current members and Leoni. In 1982 they recorded a demotape with the track Distração (Distraction), which achieved excellent airplay on Brazilian radios, and debuted on the compilation album Rock Voador (Flying ), together with other new Brazilian rock bands.

In 1984 the band released their first album, Seu Espião (Your Spy), including among others the classics Pintura Íntima (Intimate Painting), Fixação (Attachment) and Como Eu Quero (The way I want). This LP attained the first gold record of the new generation of Brazilian artists.

In 1985, the band performed live at the first Rock in Rio, an experience described by the band as an “admission exam” into business. At the same concert, Leoni’s departure was also announced.
