Finis Africae

Finis Africae
Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are 2 bands with name Finis Africae:

1. Finis Africae was part of the "new wave" of Spanish music which gradually emerged after the end of the Francoist regime.

Using modern electric instruments and traditional acoustic instruments from many cultures blended together via studio alchemy, a magic which grew even stronger with the acquisition of a sixteen-track recorder after their second release, Finis Africæ created an outward-looking musical multiverse, an unclassifiable amalgam encompassing elements of folk traditions from all over the world, skillfully and lovingly shaped into an inclusive pan-global whole. Deeply influenced by African music, the group's reverberant, organic minimal funk will appeal to DJs as well as all who yearn for the loving warmth that comes with the embrace of global possibilities

2. Finis Africae was formed in Brasília in 1984. The Band recorded an EP, and later moved to Rio De Janeiro, recording an album at EMI in 1987, achieving good results in the charts with the hit single "Armadilha". In 1988 former members Neto Pavanelli (Bass) and José Flores (Guitar) quit the group and were substituted by Roberto Medeiros, and Cesar Ninne as welll as guitar/Keyboard player Mcgregor. The band split in 1990, and was rejoined only in 1998 touring again and releasing "Finis Africae Ao Vivo" recorded in Brasília in 2000.
Grupo de rock brasiliense formado em 1984 por Rodrigo (voz, logo substituído por Eduardo), José "Zezinho" Flores (guitarra), Neto Pavanelli (baixo) e Ronaldo Pereira (bateria), diferenciavam-se das outras bandas da capital na época por um som mais suingado e dançante. Em 85 participaram de um "pau de sebo" da gravadora Sebo do Disco chamado "Rumores" com as músicas "Ética" e "Van Gogh". Foram a banda de maior sucesso na coletânea, e como prêmio gravaram pelo mesmo selo o mini LP "Finis Africae". Em seguida mudaram-se para o Rio de Janeiro e desfrutaram o êxito de "Armadilha", que possibilitou a gravação de um LP pela EMI "(Finis Africae", de 1987). Novas gravações de "Armadilha", "Máquinas" e "Mentiras", além das novas "Ask the Dust" e "Deus Ateu" conseguiram bôa repercussão nas rádios. Em 88, Neto e Zezinho saíram da banda, dando lugar a Roberto Medeiros (baixo), Mc Gregor (guitarra e teclados) e César Nine (guitarra). Mas em 90 o grupo se desfez, voltando a se reunir apenas em 98, partindo então para novas turnês pelo Brasil.
