Banda Eva portrait Banda Eva is a popular Brazilian band from the 1990's axe scene with deep roots in the Bahian Carnaval tradition. Originally a bloco de carnaval founded in the early '80s, the group transformed into a pop band, one that nurtured the careers of several solo stars, notably Luiz Caldas, Daniela Mercury and Ivete Sangalo, along with several others. Here's a quick look at the band's work...

Too-slick, generic pop, with obligatory Afro-Brazilian touches that do little to lift the music up from a morass of wanky, note-heavy electric guitars and overly-processed production. By this point, Ivete Sangolo had departed the group to be replaced by a new singer, named Emmanuelle, who is about as bland and unmagical as you'd expect. This is functional pop-radio fodder, but little else. You can skip it.
