The members are: Dirceu Melo (guitar, vocals and kaoss pad), Catarina Rosa(vocals and percussion),Sanzyo Dub (drums and Samplers)And Rapha Groove (bass).In the nineties, Dirceu Melo was the singer and guitar player of the band JorgeCabeleira E o dia em que seremos todos inúteis, Who had a big hit on Brazilian scene. CAROLINA (Luís Gonzaga) covered this song, which led to many shows all over the country and helped the MOVIMENTO MANGUEBEAT(Chico science e nacao zumbi , Silverio pessoa, Mundo livre and others) to become important within the Brazilian music such as bossa nova and tropicalia.
When the group broke up, Dirceu started Eta Carinae. They have now released a new CD, their second album: “Novos sons e tradicoes mudernizadas”
Eta Carinae is a musical marriage between electronic beats and organic elements, bringing together such divergent influences as “regional rhythms” like baião, forró and samba with rock and reggae. As with Manguebeat, the objective is to make universal music with a touch of roots. A new music for all lovers of good music !
