VELUDO started as VELUDO ELETRICO; they're Brasilian band formed in '74 and disbanded in '78. They have no official releases save for the live recording 'Ao Vivo' from 1975.
Later, they regrouped around 2000 and released a new CD, named "A Re-Volta", in 2002.
The sound of VELUDO could be described as a progressive rock with heavy tendencies and predominant organ, but also elements of symphonic prog and krautrock. However a Brasilian prog momentum is also present, since one can here OS MUTANTES influences.
The original band members were Nelsinho Laranjeiras on bass, Elias Mizrahi on keyboards (he suggested the band's name to be shortened), Paul de Castro on guitar and Gustavo Schroeter on drums.
Desculpem, saiu truncado o comentário acima...vamos lá de novo...
O Veludo fez curta mas rápida e marcante história no "rock and roll" brasileiro, com fusions de tendências progressivas, válidas no contexto cultural de uma geração! Reparem a psicodélica capa do álbum, anos 70 total! Parabéns, esses resgates são valiosos para um melhor entendimento da história da música no Brasil.
