OGRE electric is a musical project led by the world-acclaimed singer Maria João and her producer, musician and close friend João Farinha.
It started around 2009 and has gone through several identities and formations that although centered around electric pianos, synthesizers and electronics, sometimes still includes acoustic piano and drums.
The main thread is to mix a jazz approach to music creation, dressing it with electronic sounds and giving it life in the most organic way possible.
Celebrating 10 years of existence, OGRE celebrates this milestone with “Open Your Mouth”. This is the third foray into the world of electronics. Starting with “Acute Angles“, the band’s first video clip, followed by the singles “Respiros” and “Say Something”, we now present the complete album in the colors of “Tenho Um Verdadeiro Amor“. Maria João encourages us to open our mouths, sing, speak, love and fight for what we believe.
In addition to the basic training, which includes João Farinha (keyboards, synthesizers, composition and production) and André Nascimento in electronic witchcraft, the new album also features the incredible drummer Silvan Strauss who never forgets to break all the dishes and that is largely responsible for the new sound direction.
