Profile: Grupo Rio is a Latin band from London, providing beautiful music for UK public and private events. Fronted by their virtuoso guitarist, the band’s Brazilian and Latin music is an ideal accompaniment for parties, dinners, wedding receptions, corporate functions and special/themed events.
The music can be tailored to your taste. The group’s repertoire ranges from the sophisticated ambience of swing jazz through to traditional Latin styles, namely Brazilian bossa and choro, Cuban (such as Buena Vista Social Club), and contemporary Latin repertoire (such as the Gypsy Kings).
Grupo Rio can be expanded from the core trio of guitar, bass and percussion to a quartet and quintet by adding special guest performers on flute and vocals. Past clients and venues include Henley Regatta, The Gherkin, London Eye, Pizza Express, 5* London hotels and many other prestigious venues across the UK.
