Brazil goes Bananas for Heritage 1000

'Chiclete com Banana' draw the crowds in Brazil.

24 October 2003

Brazil - One of Brazil's most successful bands, Chiclete com Banana (literally 'chewing gum and banana'), has recently a Midas Heritage 1000 mixing console as part of its powerful mobile PA set-up. The 'Trio Eletrico' in which the console is installed is a development unique to Brazil and a concept that Chiclete com Banana helped to formulate.

Midas's Brazilian distributor, Henry Spong of Libor (honoured with a lifetime achievement award from Klark Teknik at the recent distributor conference in Italy), explained: "Chiclete com Banana are legends in the Brazilian music scene. They've been going since 1980 and, many gold and platinum discs later, are just as popular now. The band were keen to find a way to bring their music to the people and so ended up being key elements in the development of the modern 'Trio Eletrico' which is essentially a large truck with a stage mounted on the top and walls of loudspeakers built into the sides. Unique to Brazil the Trio is a complete powerful mobile PA system that was originally designed for the huge street carnivals that are so popular here, but is now used for many open air events."

Spong continued: "The latest Trio constructed by Chiclete com Banana was christened Tiranossauro Rex, and this is the truck for which sound engineer Wilson Silva specified the Heritage 1000. He'd seen the desk in action with a PA rental company and was very impressed with the sound and the automation system. Its compact frame size was a further bonus as space inside the truck is limited. I'm pleased to say that once the desk was installed, Wilson and the band were even more delighted with the results. He said it was the first time since 1980 they'd had a console which delivered the sound quality they'd always dreamed of as well as being clean and free from interference."
