BNegão it kind of lacks presentations. If you usually follow what has been produced musically in Brazil in recent decades, at some point that name has passed you.
But if by chance you are not very well remembered, quick summary: carioca, founder of the band The Funk Fuckers in the 1990 decade, in parallel shared the vocals with Marcelo D2 in Planet Hemp, until launching BNegão & Frequency Selectors, with whom he created one of the classic albums of contemporary national music: "Wiping Ice" (2003).
In addition, B is one of those loved ones and special, who has no way of not wanting to be around. Do you know good energy? So.
Be with the Selectors, performing with Pedro Selector and DJ Castro (Trio BNegão), whether to play or to share the stage with other artists in various special projects, Bernardo Santos usually comes to São Paulo - luckily ours!
And this week he arrives surprising, with the show "BNegão sings Dorival Caymmi"In Sesc Pompeia, inspired by" The Prairie Songs ", the first record recorded / recorded by the then-beginner and semi-unknown Dorival.
Curious? US too! And while we wait to see BNeão incorporating the songs of the master, we made a little Rapidinha with him:
