A band that is new to me, Les Pops from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil : I’ve just discovered some great pop-rock songs featuring the ukulele and all this in Portuguese!
The band Les Pops are : Thiago Anthunes on vocals, ukulele and banjo, Rodrigo Bittencourt on guitar and vocals, Daniel Lopes on vocals and guitarraxo and Raphael Rapreto on drums.
Guitarraxo? I’ll give you the band’s definition of it :
a guitar with “octave”, an effects pedal that makes the instrument sound much more serious than normal.
