The band was formed in 1979, joining vocal and instrumental music with roots in rock and classical music. Using electric-acoustic musical instruments, and an heir of a solid traditional custom, the music of Sagrado Coração da Terra brings forth the Baroque atmosphere. It really is a trip through period and space towards the roots and the continuing future of all individual musical knowledge. The musical instruments are those found in the traditional tradition — electric guitar, piano, and violin — but utilized electronically. Such as the lyrics, the music is certainly associated with an ecological idea: ecology of the planet earth, ecology of your brain, of the center and of your body. Sagrado continues to be viewed, in Brazil and overseas, as the utmost expressive work from the intensifying symphonic music of Latin America. Their music links rock and roll to the pressure of aboriginal tribal rhythms and the wonder and sophistication from the traditional. The lyrics tells about the introduction of a fresh period for mankind linked to religious and ecological queries. Marcus Viana, writer of the lyrics and all of the music of the group, became recognized to the general public by the number of soundtracks and overtures for Brazilian tv, like Pantanal, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Xica da Silva, Ana Raio e Zé Trovão, Serras Azuis, Terra Nostra, and Aquarela perform Brasil. Sagrado has truly gone through several phases. A few of its members possess gained national acknowledgement performing with additional groups and performers.
