Erica Norimar began her career in Rio as a dancer and singer, and published an album under her own name before leaving for Spain and integrating a band now mythical: Brazil Aquarius. There, she worked, among others, with the best bossa nova musicians in the country, Juan Carlos Calderon and Jordi Sabatès, before relocating again, this time to Paris.
Francisco « Chinquinho » Timotéo, accomplished composer and guitar player, became a professional in Brazil at the age of 14. He notably played on stage with the monumental Vinicius de Moraes and worked as an arranger for the brazilian radio and television. He chose to move to Paris and as soon as he arrived, started the band Os Maracatu, whose two albums both found success internationally.
Haunting Bossas and Saudades (Dodo, Ligia) displaying the incredible harmony, the complete fusion of these two tones. Springy jazzy Bossas (Chatanooga Choo Choo, Vatapa, De Frente Pro Crime) revealing Chiquinho's qualities as a melodist. Efficient and striking Sambas (Kid Cavaquinho, A Filha Da Chiquita Bacana). A Forrow, typical of the region of Nordeste (Forro), a Jazz instrumental à la Stephane Grapelli (Brasileirinho), showcasing the lead guitar. And last but not least, an uptempo Bossa (Nega De Obaluae) which could melt down the coldest dancefloor.
