About

"Brazilian singer/guitarist Marcelo Fruet and his group 'Os Cozinheiros' latest album, Aión, blends gorgeous Tropicalia melodies and subtle folk nuances with shades of bossa nova, samba, and other regionally specific influences to create a rock sound that’s singular in its marriage of modern textures and traditional Brazilian musical inflections."
— Chad Radford (Creative Loafing - Atlanta GA)

Based in Porto Alegre, capital of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil’s Southernmost State, Marcelo Fruet & Os Cozinheiros are a unique mix of influences. The world-famous Brazilian legacy of bossa nova and samba, Tropicália, rock, jazz, and folk all figure into their work. But they are undeniably a part of their own particular region: the south of Brazil, where they have also absorbed the regional border influences that make their music unique.
The Cozinheiros are led by guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and studio wizard Marcelo Fruet, who has won multiple honors including an Açorianos award for Producer of the Year and Best Original Soundtrack at the Gramado Film Festival. The Cozinheiros’ second disc, *AIÓN*, made multiple best-of-2012 lists in Brazilian newspapers, alongside such artists as Caetano Veloso and Leonard Cohen. It has been nominated for the Prêmio Açorianos de Música and was recently considered to the Latin Grammy Awards nomination for best Brazilian Rock Album, Best New Artist and Best Engineered Album. Fruet’s songs have also appeared on *Big Brother Brazil*, one of the country’s highest-rated shows.
On the road, the band has played many venues across the country and abroad. They started the *AIÓN* tour in Japan, playing KMC festival plus 8 more shows in Osaka, Tokyo and Sapporo. They also played at SXSW for the second time and performed a tour over 14 venues across USA, including places such as Arlene’s Grocery (NYC), William & Mary University (Williansburg - VA) and Eddie’s Attic (ATL). In October 2013 they were one of the three-only bands from Brazil going to CMJ Music Marathon to perform and they were back to US, for the fourth time, to play SXSW 2015.

Brazilian Music at The College of William & Mary

Marcelo Fruet & Os Cozinheiros: Contemporary Brazilian Music in Williamsburg, VA.

Next March, Brazilian Music rocker Marcelo Fruet arrives in the USA with his group to release their new album AIÓN. After showcase at SXSW 2013 in Austin, the band comes to Williamsburg to perform at The Ewell Recital Hall. The show is part of events about Brazilian music and culture, promoted by the program of Latin American Studies of The College of William & Mary. The entrance is free for students and the Williamsburg's community.

Based in Porto Alegre, Brazil’s largest southern city, Marcelo Fruet & Os Cozinheiros are a unique mix of influences. The world-famous Brazilian legacy of bossa nova and samba, Tropicália, rock, jazz, and folk all figure into their work. But they are undeniably a part of their own particular region: the south of Brazil, where they have also absorbed the regional border influences that make their music unique.

Fruet’s songs have also appeared on *Big Brother Brazil*, one of the country’s highest-rated shows.

Marcelo Fruet & Os Cozinheiros recently performed in Japan and are playing only a handful of shows during this rare U.S. visit. This is their first Williamsburg appearance ever.

 

On their latest album *AIÓN*:

The term "AIÓN", derived from ancient Greek, is used to refer to a time different from the chronological one, which can’t be measured by its quantity, but by quality. On the other hand, the graphic design of the album, created by the artist Indio San, is inspired by physics: mixing graphic lines with the “eye of the beholder.”** These are two main axes, which put Marcelo Fruet’s musical work in motion: time and illusion. It wasn’t by accident that the album was first released in Japan, where time begins earlier, on Brazil’s tomorrow. Defying logic, “AIÓN” was born in the future and upside down.

The album has 14 + 1 tracks: 13 original, a version for Jards Macalé's song "Mal Secreto" and one bonus track. Most of the songs are written in Portuguese, but there's a few in English. One of them, "Song For Tom", mixes both languages and appears to be a faithful representative of the artist's work. Each track has a slightly different flavor and you can find instruments as tympanis, cavaquinho, sitar and trombone, in some. And there’s also the Atlanta’s composer Andy Ditzler playing the piano in two tracks, among other special participations.

By the way, the word “Cozinheiros” means “cooks” in Portuguese, their native language.

** The “eye of the beholder” is the figure of an eye used in physics optical schemes to represent the position of the subject related to the object and the image or mirror.
