Andre and Mura Faria are brothers based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Aldo is the uncle of Andre and Mura, a dedication to a once wayward character. Uncle Aldo had had an edgey lifestyle in 1990’s Brazil. He would take the young brothers on journeys into Sao Paulo’s dark underbelly, scenes of illegal car racing, suspect back-alley negotiations, football gang violence and carnival parties, all soaked in alcohol. The wide-eyed brothers took it all in and later, remembering tales from their youth, pieced these together with beats Mura had begun to develop, as Andre picked up the bass. The brothers added to the live band and began gigging regularly on the Sao Paulo music scene, picking up attention from the Brazilian media and quickly growing a following. Offers of shows came and Aldo became a staple of the Brazilian live scene, in time supporting the likes of Caribou, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and in 2018, opening for Radiohead at the Allianz Park Stadium.
Sonically, Aldo sits comfortably next to bands such as Cut Copy, the early !!! albums, WhoMadeWho and Metronomy.
