Conjunto Tupy

The first group focused on a repertory of corimás (music of macumba rituals), Conjunto Tupy performed on virtually all Carioca r / c and had its live performances interrupted on air many times by the authorities when listeners fell right into a music-induced trance. Also after that, the group acquired its radio present and held it for quite some time, while also documenting 42 albums between 1931 and 1943. Their biggest strike was “Cadê Viramundo.” Produced by J.B. de Carvalho (tone of voice), Yolanda Operating-systemório (tone of voice), Zaíra Oliveira (tone of voice), Francisco Sena (banjo), and Gastão Viana (electric guitar), the group was afterwards joined up with by Herivelto Martins. Martins, presented towards the group’s associates by Príncipe Pretinho, impressed Carvalho along with his rhythmic present on the caxeta and was instantly hired. It had been Martins’ 1st professional encounter and where he actually started to create. Martins also owes towards the Tupy the creation, with Francisco Sena, of his Dupla Preto e Branco duo and his 1st recorded track: the marchinha “Da Cor perform Meu Violão” (that he offered the collaboration to J.B. de Carvalho), by Conjunto Tupy in 1932.
