MERETRIO was brought together in São Paulo - Brazil in 2004, as an initiative of EMILIANO Sampaio (guitar and trombone) , GUSTAVO Boni ( acoustic and electric bass) and LUIS ANDRÉ (drums and percussion) , with the purpose of researching the diversity of Brazilian popular music. Since its inception, the group has consistently explored the creativity in instrumental music, developing a work that mixes Brazilian rhythms, jazz elements and chamber music approach. In 2014 the trio invited six horn players from Graz - Austria to record the album Mereneu Project , which won the “Downbeat Student Award” for Best 2014 Jazz Group.

Since 2007 the trio released five albums, not only as a trio, but also with the composer and piano player Pedro Assad, the English songwriter Rebecca Sharp and other two as a nonet, with famous Brazilian horn players.

MERETRIO has already played in the most important brazilian jazz festivals :

JAZZ NA FÁBRICA | São Paulo | 2014
SAVASSI JAZZ FESTIVAL | B. Horizonte | 2011
VIRADA CULTURAL | São Paulo | 2010

Now, ten years after its beginning, MERETRIO plans to record their sixth CD and a Europe tour for 2015. In a dialogue between the trios of the past and present, it is evident that MERETRIO keeps developing their music, never leaving behind a sense of humour, creativity and the joy of making music.
