BIOGRAPHY

Vando Oliveira

Through music found his new world!

Vando Oliveira, one of the main names of Brazilian music in Europe. Resident in Germany since 2006, he has traveled to Europe for 12 years, bringing a lot of good music and joy to Brazilians and Europeans.

History and Begining

Born in Rio de Janeiro directly in the cradle of samba and in a samba family, his contact with music comes from when he was still a baby. Vando Oliveira is the son of the businesswoman Tina-Flôr (Sister of Neguinho da Beija-Flôr and Nego “Two great interpreters of the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro“), having the uncles as musical reference and the fact of having been created in the heart of the school of samba Beija-Flôr from Nilópolis, the way to become a samba player was almost right.

But at the age of 15 he met other musical styles and decided to venture into new partnerships with established artists such as: Banda Conexão Japeri by Ed Motta, in which Vando had his first participation in a Professional CD. And he has not stopped there ever since.

He became Mc of Furacão 2000 and made several presentations on television shows, signed contract with RGE and became one of the major Mc’s of the 1990’s.

But it still was not his way, and then more adult he returned to the samba. He formed his first samba group and began playing in bars and concert halls in Rio de Janeiro. He then received the invitation of his uncle Neguinho da Beija-Flôr to play with him in his shows as backing vocal and percussionist (Vando Oliveira is not only a singer, he is a multi-instrumentalist), the invitation was accepted. And so came the possibility of sharing the stage with big names in samba in Brazil and in the world.

EUROPE: A career in Europe was a surprise, “it was a great combination of things that went wrong that made me here today” (Vando Oliveira says).

He arrived in Germany in 2006 to accompany his uncle Neguinho on shows that would be made for the Brazilian soccer team during the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Unfortunately, things did not go very well and his uncle returned to Brazil. And then Vando Oliveira decided to play and sing in bars and restaurants across the country to get some money before returning to Brazil at the end of the soccer world cup. What he had not expected was that his trip back to Brazil would not happen any more.

Grito Popular

Uma vez me disseram que o samba não é mais o mesmo tem gente fazendo besteira faltando o respeito. Achando que o samba é moda, é muita concorrência falta consciência. O Samba tem identidade, não aparência.   Autor: Vando Oliveira

Se Liga “Verdadeiro Amigo”

Eu sei é brabo mas tem coisas pra gente aprender. E esse é o papo mais direto que vou te dizer. Nem sempre quem anda colado contigo, é porque gosta de você. Tem inimigo aproveitando da situação. Quer ter teu carro, tua vida, tua condição. Se liga parceiro quem muito te abraça, e quem tu chama de irmão. Autor: Vando Oliveira
