Grupo Manifesto was the “nest” of renowned Brazilian musicians and now it is time to present their first LP. The second album is already available at Loronix and by that time I told that Grupo Manifesto was a group of friends use to make their meetings on Manifesto botequim, something very difficult to translate to English (*). I cannot check now, but I remember someone making this request a couple of days ago.

This is Grupo Manifesto – Manifesto Musical (1967), for Elenco, slight better than the second album, featuring a smaller group with Fernando Leporace, Gracinha Leporace, Guarabyra, Junaldo, Lucinha and Mariozinho Rocha. Gracinha Leporace is the well-known member of several Sergio Mendes groups, Guarabyra is the same artist of the trio Sa, Rodrix & Guarabyra and Lucinha changed her name later to assembly the duo Lhuli e Lucina. Mario Telles, which is Sylvia Telles brother, makes a special participation, singing track 02 – Desencontro. Performers on each track are highlighted with track list. Tracks include:

01 – Margarida (Guarabyra) – GUARABYRA
02 – Desencontro (Amaury Tristão / Mário Telles) – MARIO TELLES & GRACINHA LEPORACE
03 – Manifesto (Mariozinho Rocha / Guto Graça Melo) – LUCINHA
04 – O Mundo É Nosso (Mariozinho Rocha / Fernando Leporace) – GRUPO MANIFESTO
05 – Amor Ausente (Mariozinho Rocha / Guto Graça Melo) – GRACINHA LEPORACE
06 – Além do Infinito (Fernando Leporace) – GRUPO MANIFESTO

(*) Botequim (and its variation boteco) is a place where Brazilians often go to drink, eat and chat. A good translation could be pub but this is not so simple. A good botequim has its peculiarities, mainly the simplicity of the decoration (usually related to soccer teams) and the “high-fat” food but the most important is the friendly environment.

This is something that we never spoke before at Loronix and it is the time to introduce friends to Grupo Manifesto, created in 1965 by a group of friends with no identified leader. Much more than a musical group, Grupo Manifesto was a group of friends who got together in a botequim(*) at Rua Gustavo Sampaio, Leme. I’m not sure if Grupo Manifesto took the name of the bar or the bar got this name from the group. I live close to this street and never heard about this Manifesto botequim. Perhaps they close it before making the move to here. This is the second and last LP released by Grupo Manifesto, let’s see what we have here.

This is Grupo Manifesto – Grupo Manifesto Nr. 2 (1968), for Elenco, featuring several friends that became later recognized Brazilian artists, as follow: Amauri Tristão, Fernando Leporace, Guto Graça Melo, Mariozinho Rocha, Augusto César Pinheiro, José Renato Filho, Junaldo, Lucelena, Gracinha Leporace and Guarabyra. Lucelena is also known as Lucina from the duo Luhli e Lucina. It is a really different record with everybody alternating vocals on tracks making a really nice outcome. Tracks include:

01 – Maria Redentora (Mariozinho Rocha) – Lucina / Grupo Manifesto / Lunaldo
02 – Diferença (Amaury Tristão / Mariozinho Rocha) – Tristão / Grupo Manifesto / Gracinha Leporace
03 – Pra Que Brigar (Wolmar Carneiro / Mariozinho Rocha) – Grupo Manifesto / Junaldo
04 – Hoje É Domingo (Fernando Leporace / Mariozinho Rocha)
05 – Quem Vem Lá (Amaury Tristão / João Medeiros Filho)
06 – Bloco da Vida (Guarabyra / Capinan) – Grupo Manifesto / Lucina
07 – Só (Amaury Tristão / Mário Telles) – Lucina / Grupo Manifesto
08 – Garoto Paissandu (Mariozinho Rocha) – Grupo Manifesto / Junaldo
09 – Sem Dor (Fernando Leporace) – Grupo Manifesto / Lucina
10 – Minha Decisão (Amaury Tristão / João Medeiros Filho) – Grupo Manifesto / Junaldo
11 – Marianinha (Fernando Leporace) – Grupo Manifesto / Gracinha Leporace
