LAREIRAU: A poetic license that translates as a delightful musical meeting close to the fireplace, which for twelve years has amused guests, visitors and friends of the Pousada do Engenho in the charming mountain town of São Francisco de Paula in southern Brazil. They have already surpassed the mark of more than 100 presentations, both in the mountains and in Porto Alegre.
Led by the singers and composers Alex Alano, Marisa Rotenberg and Gelson Oliveira and tempered with the spicy percussion of Giovanni Berti, the quartet brings classics and newly released songs of Brazilian and international music, and also their own compositions. The musicians have a long and winding history, with several discs released as well as individual awards, the diversity of their experiences provide the irresistible sound mix of the Lareirau band. In November 2017, Lareirau played at São Chico Beatle Weekend, taking their versions, with very original arrangements of classics of the most beloved Liverpool band and were quickly invited by the visiting Cavern Directors to perform at this year’s International Beatleweek festival!Back to bands
