PEU PEREIRA’S BIOGRAPHY
Born into a family of musicians, his father was a great reference and a precursor in the music industry, so that Peu and all members of his family joined this art. The artist Peu Pereira started his career very young. At the age of 17 he had already entered the music professionally and continued his activism in this profession as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and music producer, performing in various stages in Brazil, in major festivals, private events and shows with his own band and also accompanying renowned artists in Brazil.
His curriculum includes several bands from various musical segments, and records his signature in phonographic and audiovisual recordings of artists and bands regionally and nationally known in Brazil, such as: Edil Pacheco; Cicinho de Assis; Raimundo Sodré; Carlos Pita; Val Macambira; Flor-de-lis; Sanfona Maluka (his own band), among others.
In his artistic career, Pereira also signs as a music producer, arranger and instrumentalist in various music productions (CDs, DVDs, Soundtracks, among other musical activities) of various artists in Brazil, through his own producer and Recording studio “Pulsom Productions”.
In 2018, independently, Peu released his first authorial work as a solo instrumentalist. Admirer of the richness of Brazilian musical genres, was composed the EP "Origins Without Borders", a work resulting from the research and musical experiences of the artist, which shows the diversity of Brazilian rhythms, through instrumental music, performed with mastery by the Bahia’s musician. It is also worth mentioning that this beautiful work had special appearances by great musicians, such as: Cicinho de Assis; Moises De Jesus; Hito Pereira; Nylson Ribeiro; Edy; Felipe de Castro; Xipa Baiano; Fernando Martins and Renan Nonato.
Recently, Peu moved to the United States and lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and has been promoting his art with excellence and prominence, both as an instrumentalist, participating in various festivals such as “International Jazz Series – Cultural Exchange” (Georgia, 2019), “Brazilian Folks Festival” (Florida, 2018), Houston Brazilian Carnaval (Texas, 2019), among others, and also as a music producer. In fact, Peu is already conducting several projects, which include touring his recent EP across the country; new phonographic records with the singer Fernanda Noronha; the setting up of his new recording studio with Fernanda, among other musical surprises that will soon be presented to the general public.
