ABOUT
 

 

Azymuth is a Brazillian Jazz-Funk trio formed in 1972. The original band member were the late Jose Roberto Bertrami (Keyboard) plus Alex Malheiros (Bass Guitar) , and Ivan Conti (drums, percussion).

From 1979 to 1988, they released many albums for Milestone Records. They also had a major hit single with "Jazz Carnival" in 1979. It peaked at number 19 in the UK singles Chart in January 1980. Since the mid-1990s, they have released albums on the London based Far Out Recordings label, while remaining based in Brazil, and continue to tour in Europe.

Azymuth have also been involved in producing albums and their artists have been involved in several other projects through the years, including an album by Brazilian singer-songwriter Ana Mazzotti, and the 2005 debut album, Equilibria, by Alex Malheiros's daughter Sabrina Malheiros. They call their music "Samba Doido", which means "Crazy Samba". Since the advent of the remix, many of Azymuth's songs have been redone by a wide range of artists and musicians. Several electronic acts like Jazznova among many others, can be heard remixing their works.
