Árvores de Carvalho was formed in 1998. They have a unique sound that can be heard on their self-written songs, with lyrics that talk about what the band members think is essential for peaceful living; things such as union, equality, peace, liberty, and hope are always present on their compositions. By playing their own songs they've earned a great amount of respect and a personal way of seeing the music business. The name, more than just its literary meaning, means perseverance. From now on, thing of them as friends. They sure treat the fans as such.
