The ReFuturo band is one of the most important actions for the dissemination of the 3 pillars of the ReFuturo Dub project. Through organic training, ReFuturo adds values and ideas that manifest themselves in the interaction between artists, promoting interpersonal connection, artistic experimentation and environmental, political and social awareness.
ReFuturo is much more than a band. It is the manifestation of diversity, freedom and the right to life and social existence. It is about valuing inclusion. It is political-social awareness. It is sustainable survival. It is to transform the reality of the near future through a lot of good music and impactful and representative actions.
Several artists from different areas have played for the band ReFuturo, such as producer and multi-instrumentalist Tico Zapata, guitarist Thiago Mendes, bassists Gabriel China, Paulo Cellos and Júlio Chinemann, saxophonist Hygor Mouteira, drummer Lino Serra.
The ReFuturo band always seeks to be the space of opportunity for, in addition to talent, black people, peripheral people, LGBTQIA+ and any collective that needs visibility and voice to make their art shine.
