O Leopardo is a ska band formed in 2015 in Belo Horizonte. The band started as a new project of singer / guitarist Bruno Moreno, a well-known figure in the local underground scene who hadn't shown this skanking dance before. But the time to release "the leopard" from a jail had come.
Being formed in the streets of Belo Horizonte in 2015 O Leopardo's line-up made of Bruno Moreno (band Irônika), Tomaz Petrillo (bands Eckolu, No voice), Filipe Otacílio and Lucas Moura (band Karniça di Garage). Their songs are in portugues and have elements of ska, reggae, surf music and mambo.
The name O Leopardo refers to what is wild and instinctive. The fusion of rock with the balance of tunes emanating from the tropics, it has a "hot" character of the music from the third world coming from the band's sounds. Their songs are about dilemmas and amusements of contemporary youth, love and war, the city and the world.
So the music of O Leopardo is an explosive mix involving playful, popular and dancing notes. Hot like summer love, fascinating like the attack of a wild cat - it makes you feel like dancing in the concrete jungles!
