Biography

Group born and bred in Fortaleza, Brazil, this consort of long time friends played for a few years in bars and clubs around hometown, investigating from the jazz classic repertoire to 80’s pop.
To combine the sweet and brave sounds of the harmonic and guitar were the starting point for the group. After adding components whose areas of interest include Jazz, Cinema, Photography, Bossa Nova, Surf, Hang-glider, Theater, Techno and Football, Realejo X-tet was set to depart.

Dustan Gallas, Danilo Carvalho, Rian Batista and Denilson Lopes take advantage of not feeling held up by any style and exercise the freedom that music itself provides and try to build scenes and sceneries with an influence of the surprise element. They keep Jazz alive in their drum machines and build a drum arrangement thinking of Erasure, Jorge Ben, Ravel and Miles Davis, all living in the same heart.

Mixing beats and jazz with the brazillian spice is the ground mark of the Northeastern Brazillian group Realejo X-Tet. It investigates timeless classics such as “Tico Tico”, an old Carmen Miranda standard and “How Insensitive”, one of the most sensible melodies one can come across when touching Tom Jobim’s magical and special repertoire.
As for the original content, the group builds images straight out of the cinematic ideas of deep personal experience, establishing routes stylistically related to samba as in “Samba da vez”, loungy improvisations as in “Café da Praia”, till Northeastern Brazil passages with acoustic steel string ventures with “Urbano”.
