Ivo Meirelles


A widely known number within the samba picture and promising fresh talent of this type, the former diretor de harmonia (probably one of the most essential roles inside a samba college) of Mangueira Ivo Meirelles wrote probably one of the most well-known sambas from the ’80s, “Caymmi Mostra ao Mundo o que a Bahia e a Mangueira Têm.” However, he abandoned worries of authenticity, incorporating in his music components of pop, funk, and rock and roll, having documented four single albums from 1986 to 1999. The brand new militancy brought him a collaboration with Lobão. Meirelles also shaped the group Funk’n’Lata, which accompanies him in a few of his albums. With this encounter, he attempts to blend the various but related ethnicities from the samba college and of funk music, discovering an appearance of poverty (the music artists’ uniform is definitely strongly similar to those utilized by garbage enthusiasts in Rio de Janeiro). In 2001, he previously success in the Rock and roll in Rio III Event.
