Banda UO (Davi, Mateus and Candy Mel) from the city of Goiania in the Midwest in Brazil have adopted an Amazonian style of music originally from the city of Belem called tecno brega — which loosely translates as “cheesy techno”. In 2011 the group won the Brazilian MTV Web Video of the Year award for their heavy-metal brega sample of Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” entitled “Shake de Amor” and are currently under supervision by fellow Brazilians in Bonde do Role who are grooming them for world domination.
