Because of their sophisticated flavor and pop sensibility, Clã (meaning “clan”) became a 90’s and 00’s Portuguese pop mainstay. In 1992 music artists Helder Goncalves (piccolo bass), Manuela Azevedo (vocals), Miguel Ferreira (keyboards), Pedro Biscaia (keyboards), Pedro Rito (bass) and Fernando Goncalves (drums) arrived together to developing Clã. Four years later on the group created their debut documenting LusoQualquerCoisa (1996) for EMI. This 1st record initiated a successful romantic relationship with EMI that could come to create seven such discs in just a little over a decade. As the group’s discography grew, therefore did their group of fans and general public acclaim. Clã became a masses favorite for his or her mastery from the stage and capability to outshine their recordings in live concerts. Their information consistently gained high marks both from critics and product sales/airplay charts as well. The band’s 2007 launch Cintura climbed to quantity 13 on Portuguese graphs.
