Tribalistas are Back!


Fifteen years after the spectacular worldwide success of the first album by the Tribalistas, Marisa Monte, Arnaldo Antunes and Carlinhos Brown are getting together again for a new musical adventure. The new album will arrive by the end of ths month on digital platforms.

On a surprise Facebook Live this Wednesday night, August 9th, Tribalistas revealed, first hand, four of the ten tracks of their brand new album. The unexpected show of the trio formed by Arnaldo Antunes, Carlinhos Brown and Marisa Monte started at 11 PM, Brazil time, and was streamed live at the artists’s and Spotify’s fan pages on Facebook. Thousands of followers inBrazil and in more than 50 countries joined the 60-minute performance that was broadcasted live from a studio in Rio de Janeiro.

Accompanied by musicians Dadi, Cézar Mendes and Pedro Baby, Tribalistas performed their new songs Diáspora, Um Só, Fora da Memória and Aliança. The trio also answered a few questions sent live by fans and Spotify and explained why it took them 15 years to release a new project.

From today on, the first four singles were made available in Spotify and all digital platforms worldwide. The videos of the four songs, directed by Dora Jobim, can be watched on Itunes/Apple Music and Facebook. The group, in a partnership with Spotify and Facebook, also developed specially for the release an exclusive mobile interactive tool that innovated the digital music consumption: the Hand Album. Whoever access any of their pages on the social network via smartphone will find in a single environment all content related to the songs: lyric videos, chords, production credits, backstage photos and videos excerpts in vertical format. The tool also allows the user to access Spotify to listen the songs.

Released in 2002, the first CD/DVD of Tribalistas reached a more than 3 million sales mark and soon became a phenomenon in many countries around the world – notoriously in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, United States and Colombia.
