Grupo Medusa

Formed by percussionist Chico Medori, Grupo Medusa were surely one of the best-known and most creative instrumental bands to come out of Brasil during the 70s and 80s. Releasing only two albums, the group blended smooth jazz with African influences over traditional Brasilian rhythms.

Easily identified by the languid fretless bass of Claudio Bertrame and the quite astounding percussion of Chico Medori, Grupo Medusa’s sound is truly timeless. At a time when Brasil’s music and culture are exploding across the globe like never before, it seems only right that Grupo Medusa get some well-deserved attention once more.
