2007 – present (10 years)
Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Cabeza de Panda (panda head in English):
An ursid originating in the cold Chinese mountains moves to Rio De Janeiro in search of a warmer climate and a more varied diet. Inspired by the stories of the journey and the adventurous spirit of this nearly extinct migrant, three musicians, in 2007, formed a rock band with multiple personality and a bipolar temperament. Dark and psychedelic, regressive and progressive, revisionist and visionary.
Cabeza de Pandas lyrics range from complete cynicism to the purest sincerity, and the music arrangements alternate between tranquil and hard, but always in the service of involved melodies and riffs, in songs that are straight-forward and wandering at the same time. An intensity of rock filtered through various lenses, with something new around every corner. Difficult to explain, much better if you just listen.
ALEXANDRE VAZ (guitar and vocals), LOURENÇO MONTEIRO (drums and vocals) and
MAURO BERMAN (bass and keyboards) make up CABEZA DE PANDA.
The three members are part of the band that currently accompanies the rapper Marcelo D2. Previously they have played and recorded with artists such as
Toni Garrido, Thalma de Freitas, Marcos Valle, Azymuth, Dado Villa-Lobos, Arnaldo Brandão, Fernanda Abreu and many others.
Starting the year 2008 off right, Cabeza de Panda played the festival Humaitá
pra Peixe, in a show which had a very positive outcome in write-ups in the Jornal do Brasil, and specialized blogs. During the week of January 21 to 28 the band was placed among those bands featured on the main page of MySpace Brasil Música.
