ORUÃ is a child of downtown, was born at night and attends the balls at dawn. The latest music project by Lê Almeida, one of the most important Indie rock artists from South America to be discovered, this time accompanied by João Luiz and Phill Fernandes.
The ensemble emerged at the end of 2016, during improvisation sessions at Escritório in Rio de Janeiro, where everything was taped, trimmed, reassembled and pasted, giving birth to their first record Sem Bênção / Sem Crença, released in Brazil by Transfusão Noise Records and just released in the United States as a double LP via IFB Records.
With nuances of krautrock and free jazz, the lyrics, always in Portuguese, bring encoded messages and guided symbols, turning music into a potential weapon. Live, ORUÃ is a stage for fraternity, occasionally counting on a second drummer, percussion and some extra vocals. Between one trip and another, they released some singles and are recording their second album, Romã, which will be released in Brazil and in the US in early 2019 on vinyl, another partnership between Transfusão Noise Records and IFB Records.
