Trio Ternura

The Brazilian group Trio Ternura were more than just the recent superhit “A Gira”, which has become a staple of dancefloors around a world. Only yesterday a group of excited dancers in Malmö challenged the restrictions to the sound created by siblings Jurema, Robson and Jussara Lourenço da Silva back in 1973. But the group also recorded two amazing albums in 1986 and 1971, respectively. The latter (both of them self-titled) was finally reissued by Groovie Records last year. While they did perform on the Jovem Guarda show, their sound was much more influenced by American soul music than traditional Brazilian sounds and tropicália. They would become a part of the MPB (música popular brasileira) genre that became hugely popular in the 70s.
