Som Imaginário
A progressive rock band formed in the early '70s in Rio de Janeiro by a core of musicians from the Minas Gerais state, the Som Imaginário developed an influential career and also backed artists like Milton Nascimento, Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Fafá de Belém, Sueli Costa, Carlinhos Vergueiro, and Jards Macalé in live performances and recordings. The group was formed by Wagner Tiso (keyboards), Zé Rodrix (organ/percussion/voice/flutes), Robertinho Silva (drums), Tavito (12-string guitar), Luís Alves (bass), and Laudir de Oliveira (percussion), around which Toninho Horta (guitars) and Nivaldo Ornelas (saxes) eventually performed. Their biggest hits were "Feira Moderna" (Fernando Brant/Beto Guedes), "Hey Man" (Zé Rodrix/Tavito), "Cenouras" (Fredera), and "Nova Estrela" (Wagner Tiso).
