• Natiruts

    The band was born in Brasilia under the name Nativus. Alexandre
    Carlo, who was a student at the time created it in 1996. It first
    appeared in the university circuit of the Federal Capital and got
    distinguished from the local scene, until the opportunity to record
    the first CD occurred in Rio de Janeiro. From that point on, the
    history of the band went through pathways that the very members
    never dreamed of crossing.
    Currently with nine CDs and three DVDs released, Natiruts has a
    successful history that can be told from their discography. That is
    what we are doing next, going through all the band’s albums and
    remembering all the songs that were among the hits I Brazil’s radios
    and that are in the heads and the hearts of everyone.
    The record that had the old name of the band, Nativus, was released
    in 1997 independently. Three tracks opened the doors to the
    phonographic Market, and got the group to be known across the
    country: “Liberdade Pra Dentro da Cabeça” (Freedom inside the
    mind), “Deixa o Menino Jogar” (Let the boy play), and “Presente de
    um Beija-Flor” (Gift from a hummingbird). EMI Records was
    interested in the album and released the reggae band from the
    Cerrado (Brazilian mainland) on a national level with full power. The
    outcome: it sold so much that it reached the platinum record, and
    along came the first tours from North to South.
    In 1999 – already called Natiruts – the band released the album
    Povo Brasileiro (Brazilian People), which came to confirm the band
    would not be a fleeting success. The production was performed by
    Liminha, and once more Natiruts managed to place hits among the
    songs that payed the most in Brazilian radio stations. Hits like “Eu e
    Ela” (Me and Her), “O Carcará e a Rosa” (Southern carcara and the

    rose), “Meu Reggae é Roots” (My reggae is roots) became a huge
    success and the album was awarded the Gold Record.
    In 2001, legendary Tom Capone produced the Verbalize album. The
    title track, as well as the hit “Andei Só” (I walked alone), made the
    top hits in Brazilian radio stations for a long time. That album also
    led to the first concerts abroad.
    Another album produced by Tom Capone and that sold as well as
    the previous one, Quatro (Four), from 2002, was the milestone for
    Natiruts fans. The aesthetics and the harmony of reggae roots
    added to elements of the Brazilian pop music have marked the
    musical identity of the band. “Bob Falou” (Bob has spoken),
    “Naticongo”, and “Leve com Você” (Take it with you) were the
    greatest hits.
    In 2005, the band has terminated the contract with EMI and became
    independent again. The Jamaican underground culture was
    cherished in the album Nossa Missão (Our mission), that brought
    the dub sound. Production was carried out by Alexandre Carlo
    himself, singer and main composer of Natiruts. And even without a
    great record label backing it up, the track “Quero Ser Feliz Também”
    (In also want to be happy) became the greatest hit in Brazilian
    radios, and the video clip for “Não Chore Meu Amor” (Don’t cry my
    love), with the participation from Lirinha was a huge success in
    In order to celebrate the 10 years of Natiruts, in 2006 the band
    released their first CD and DVD Live, recorded at the Credicard Hall,
    in São Paulo, Brazil. “Natiruts Reggae Power”, the only track that
    was unheard of from the repertoire, became a national mania, and
    the hit was awarded the “Gold DVD”. The tour for Natiruts Reggae
    Power was record-braking for audiences both in Brazil and abroad.
    The album Raçaman (Raceman) was released in 2009, produced
    once again by Alexandre Carlo and mixed in London by the
    legendary Mad Professor, one of the greatest representatives of
    Jamaican dub. Sonority reached the fans’ ears in a much more
    modern fashion.
    In 2012 the band came back with another live project: the CD and

    DVD Acoustic in Rio de Janeiro. That album celebrated 15 years of
    the band’s carrier with a breathtaking registry scenario – Mirante
    Dona Marta (Dona Marta Observatory) – and was nominated for the
    Latin Grammy 2013 in the category Best Brazilian Modern Pop
    Album , ans was awarded the platin DVD.
    In 2014, the band was steady on the road, going through Brazil,
    Argentina, Chile, and Portugal with the Acoustic songs. In the same
    yeat the DVD/CD #NoFilter was released, with live recording that
    brought the spontaneity of an unprogrammed registry.
    In 2015, a nice surprise: the famous list from Billboard notified that
    Natiruts is ahead of Tom Jobim in the list of artists that are more
    heard abroad. While the foreigners go wild partying with Natiruts,
    the band prepares to release the DVD and CD Natiruts Reggae
    Brasil, and to launch a new chapter in Brazilian reggae.
    In 2016, the band wrote a new chapter in Brazilian Reggae on
    releasing the DVD and CD Natiruts Reggae Brasil. This work was
    able to gather in an unprecedented way the stars of Brazilian
    Reggae and Pop. The unforgettable show took place in Salvador
    and included: Gilberto Gil, Edson Gomes, Ivete Sangalo, Toni
    Garrido (Cidade Negra), Saulo Fernandes and DM de Boa,
    Armandinho, Marcelo Mira (Alma Djem), Zeider Pires (Planta &
    Raiz), Hélio Bentes (Ponto de Equilíbrio), Tati Portellla and Sander
    Fróis (Chimarruts), Duda Diamba, Marceleza (Maskavo), Edu
    Ribeiro and Sine Calmon. All these artists gathered to sing a
    repertoire that tells the history of made in Brazil reggae.
    In 2017, the seventh studio album, Índigo Cristal, was released on
    the 4th of August, the same period that the band began a huge tour
    around Latin America. The most recent tour was sold-out and went
    through Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico and Paraguay. Now, it
    goes around Brazil.
    In 2018, the eighth album – I Love – was released and produced by
    lead singer Alexandre Carlo in the studio Zeroneutro, in Brasília. Its
    songs are a trip through rhythms from several corners in the world
    in interpretations following the best Natiruts style.

    In the year that Natiruts celebrates its 25-year birthday, the band
    released their ninth album called “Good Vibration – Vol 1” on May
    28 of 2021, which was mixed by Tony Maserati (who has already
    worked with Beyoncé and Ariana Grande) and mastered by Felipe
    Tichauer. It is the album with the highest number of participations in
    the band trajectory, including names like: Carlinhos Brown, Iza,
    Melim, Macaco, Ziggy Marley, Debi Nova, Pedro Capó, and Planta
    e Raiz. By 2022, a volume 2 is expected to complete its package."
