Arising in mid-2003, Abraskadabra is a band from Curitiba/Brazil formed by friends in high-school, who luckily had in their hands horn instruments abandoned by the school band.
The influences are diverse, intercalating mainly melodic hardcore and third wave ska. They make it clear, from the first moment, their tastes for melodies: evident in their vocal trios and horn section.
Acting in the underground circuit since its formation and being a great diffuser of skacore in Brazil, Abraskadabra has already played in much of the country and already collects two US tours. The last one from April to May of 2018, the tour extended from coast to coast, passing through 18 American cities, to spread their new album titled "Welcome" (Feb, 2018), which received good reviews nationally and internationally, praised even by Vinnie Fiorello, drummer of Less Than Jake's legendary ska band.
During those years, Abraskadabra was also always marking presence in relevant shows, sharing the stage with bands like: Bad Religion, Rise Against, Dead Fish, Garage Fuzz, Flogging Molly, Fishbone, Raimundos, Streetlight Manifesto, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Sugar Kane, Zander, Pauline Black (The Selecters), Goldfinger, The Toasters, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Satanic Surfers, to name some.
For the last work, “Welcome”, the production was signed by Thiago Trosso (vocalist and saxophonist of the band). The recording of the album was made 100% by the band, from pre-production to post-production; they stayed in a detached house in Curitiba for 15 days for complete immersion and with the intention of bringing the spirit of everything that involved this totally DIY process, formula used in every material ever made by them.
Lastly, it not only the 15 years on road that confirm the power and quality of Abraskadabra, but also the mood and energy they impose on the music they create, being one of the most interesting and solid bands in the country today.
