With more than eleven years of career, the band BICHO DO PÉ brings a broad and deep research on Brazilian rhythms. Their set list mixes popular music standards rescued from the northeastern Brazilian culture with their own compositions. One of them, “Nosso Xote”, was among the most played on radio stations throughout the country and their first CD “Com os pés nas nuvens” has sold over 120 thousand copies. In 2004, the band wrote and recorded the soundtrack for an internationally distributed advertisement staring Pele as the protagonist. The following year they travelled to the USA and pre-released their second CD “Que seja” in Boston and New York. In 2009, the band released a double DVD with guest musician Chico Cesar and also a documentary on their ten year-career.
