Hello there!

A forum dedicated to the introduction of you

Hello there!

Postby Annie » 22 Jan 2012, 02:26

I'm Annie. I'm 26 years old and I live in the countryside of Sao Paulo, Brazil. I'm originally from Sao Paulo city but I moved to the countryside when i entered the university. I'm studying veterinary medicine and I should become a proper veterinarian in 2 years. :? :)

Are there any other brazilians around? I highly doubt it, but well, here i am. :geek:

I really like prog music such as TFK, Frost*, Transatlantic, Genesis, Peter Gabriel, Neal Morse, Spocks Beard and so on. On the other hand, I also enjoy lots of other stuff, from doom metal to pop. :geek:

Welcome here!!

I think we share exactly the same taste for music... mostly prog rock but nearly every other genres too!

I think you're the first Brazilian to come here, and also one of the few girls... I know only two Brazilian artists: Bïa (pop/world music/chanson) and Céu (electro/lounge/pop). They are both very good!

So you like more upbeat prog rock... or is it just and incomplete list? I also like mellower/darker prog acts such as White Willow, King Crimson, Pain of Salvation, Anekdoten, Paatos, Harmonium, PFM, Banco...

See you soon! :)

haha i already expected that there wouldn't be any brazilians.. i know very few people in person that know and like TFK. It's a shame, really.
On the other hand, I expected that you'd mention something like Tom Jobim, Hermeto Pascoal, Angra and Sepultura! haha! I do not know Bia but I know Céu. It's pretty good indeed. :)
I like all the bands you mentioned (except for harmonium, which i havent heard yet!), so i guess our taste for music is very similar indeed :ugeek:

Hmm thought I was the youngest one in here, so another 26 year old comes in :)

Interesting you mention Doom metal, I'm currently listening to Esoteric - Epistemological despondency. Other favouritesof mine are Skepticism, Candlemass, Winter, Shape of Despair and Evoken. I know a brazilian dude who seems to be open for prog, he calls himself Netin/Saraiva and has a sister helena, although I forgot wether they lived in sao paulo or not (but they might!).
Don't know anything about Tom Jobim and Hermeto Pascoal, but I like Angra (temple of shadows) and Sepultura (Morbid visions, Beneath the remains)! :D

Welcome btw ;)

Sorry, Annie, I've got extreme difficulties in reading your posts because of that lovely cat (your own, by any chance?) you've chosen as your avatar - a veritable eye-catcher, that one. Welcome to the forum and good luck with your studies.

Hi Annie!

I know I'm a bit late, but I just wanted to welcome you to the forum too. We are a friendly bunch here - I think so anyway - so feel free to relax and discuss any music you want!
I have to admit a total lack of knowledge regarding Brazilian music, in fact, regarding South American music in general I'm afraid. The only album I have from 'around' that area is Angels And Demons, by a band called Cast, from Mexico, so they aren't really 'local' to you! I am, however, a big Steve Hackett fan, and have all his albums, so I do have some connection with Brazil through his ex-wife's album covers. (Kim Poor is from Brazil of course!)
What prog acts can you recommend from Brazil?

Regards,

Carl.
