Os Lobos

Os Lobos

If Os Mutantes were to Brazil what the Beatles were to England, then I have no idea how to classify Os Lobos. In fact, I would say that Os Mutantes were more to early Pink Floyd or the Soft machine. Os Lobos take several pages from the Beatles, while still managing to craft some of the best and original melodies from the tropicalia movement. If you like the Beatles, then I am positive you will enjoy these(I know that’s a bold statement, but give them a listen):

If Paul McCartney had visited Brazil instead of India to write rocky raccoon he would have written this song:

Os Lobos – Fanny


The next song is sung by the female vocalist, and was one of the prettiest songs to come out of the troplicalia movement:

Os Lobos – Avenida Central

  1. It’s insane to compare Os Mutantes to Os Lobos. The first one was involved directly to a cultural movement that shaked the straight values of popular music in Brazil. os Mutantes’ earlier works shows a fusion of regional brazilian music with psychedelic rock. Os Lobos are just a good rock and vocal band, having appeared few years later of Tropicalia explosion.
