The duet emerged thanks to the encounter of two musicians, Otis Selimane Remane (Mozambique) and Eduardo Scaramuzza (Brazil). This joint is a result of an interchange made by Eduardo to Africa, on which he gathered experiences that dialogues with African and Afro-Brazilian culture.
Baptized as «Mbirofonia Duo», the project is born in the middle of September 2016 and has its first appearance right after in October of the same year.
Its a highly conceptual project that seeks to reaffirm the relations between Brazil and Mozambique as a unified culture and get people to know sounds from other parts of the world, southern Africa in particular. With a vast repertoire that goes from folk Mozambican, Zimbabwe and Malawi, Brazilian Capoeira and some popular songs, Mbirofonia characterizes itself as a group that’s always reinventing and adapting songs and rhythms in an innovative way, not displacing from its origin.
