BELEZA! BELEZA!! BELEZA!!!
Considered by many as the "Fathers of Samba Soul", legendary veteran Brazilian band Trio Mocotó have made a remarkable comeback : they reformed in 2001 after an absence of over twenty years and unleashed the joyful 'Samba Rock' album , which gained them a whole new generation of fans around the globe. The Trio now return with an even stronger, funkier and groovier album: "Beleza ! Beleza !! Beleza !!!", which was recorded in São Paulo by the band's revised line-up featuring original members João Parahyba & Nereu Gargalo and a new vocalist/guitarist, the exciting Skowa. The album also features guest appearances by Zuco 103, Wilson Simoninha, Max de Castro, Apollo 9, and comedian Beto Hora playing the part of the sports radio commentator in "Replay", a football anthem dug out from the archives by the Trio. Incidentally, around half of the songs on the album are new versions of classics, while the other half are brand-new compositions by the Trio members. Trio Mocotó have been doing a large number of concerts in 2002/ 2003 (over one hundred dates around Europe, Asia and Australia), and will start touring again from April 2004 onwards. "Beleza ! Beleza !! Beleza !!!": the perfect party soundtrack, guaranteed to make everyone smile, jump and dance... 1 Beleza, Beleza, Beleza 2 Dingue Li Bangue feat.
