Watch the clip of Marimbondo:

Marimbondo is composed by the guitarist of Grillo and the Mosquitos, Pedro Germer. He says that the song emerged from an attempt to unite the language of Northeastern music to the sounds and articulations of the electric guitar, using techniques in which the sound is taken with movements of the left hand on the instrument's neck. The name of the composition, on the other hand, comes from an unusual situation experienced by Germer. “I was taking a shower and a wasp landed on me. My first reaction was to try to slap the animal, but I ended up getting stung. At another time, when I was thinking about the song, I remembered this situation and I thought it had everything to do with it, because the sound of it is almost like a buzz, a swarm of wasps. I thought it matched so much that I decided to name the song after that,” he explains.


The instrumental trio Grillo e os Mosquitos, from Florianópolis, is formed by the musicians john peters (contrabass), Peter Germer (guitar) and Gustavo Grillo (drums). The project was born in 2016 by the desire to get together to play their favorite themes and improvise on top of them.
