The IMBA Original, conceived by Bruno Oliveira, renowned producer and vocal coach in the phonographic market, is gaining prominence. Bruno Oliveira has already worked with big names in national and international music, such as Ludmilla, Mumuzinho, Orochi, Duzão Menos é Mais, Soraia Ramos and Blaya, among others. After directing a special version of the song “Vai Na Fé”, performed by Negra Li and a choir of professional singers, Bruno started IMBA, a group formed by singers who already act as backing vocals for renowned artists, such as Glória Groove, Luiza Sonsa, Negra Li, Alexandre Pires and Emicida, among others.
Recently, a video went viral and caught the attention of the Domingão program, led by Luciano Huck. As a result, the IMBA Original group received a special invitation to perform on the show, along with Negra Li, in a tribute to entrepreneur Toalá Antônia, owner of Casa das Kapulanas. The presentation, which will be shown on June 25, promises to thrill the public and bring awards and honors to Toalá Antônia. IMBA Original shows its talent and consolidates its space in the music scene, providing unique and remarkable moments.
The participation of IMBA Original in the Domingão program, led by Luciano Huck, brought great visibility to the group. How did you receive this invitation and what was the impact of this opportunity on the project?
We were ecstatic with the aftermath of the program! The invitation came through the production of the Domingão program, after watching our participation on YouTube in the video we recorded for the Negra Li channel of the song “Vai Dar Certo (vai na fé)” and they wanted this live performance on stage. We were flattered and there was a before and after in our career after the video went viral on the networks and it gave us strength to actually form our career as a group.
In addition to recognition on the Domingão program, you also worked with renowned artists such as Ludmilla, Mumuzinho, Orochi, among others. How did these collaborations contribute to your professional growth?
The experience of collaborating in their work was incredible! In addition, they shared it on their networks through stories, always with me, which brought greater respect in the music industry. The result was the artistic evolution of these singers not only vocally, but also in their artistic vision. It was an honor to have the opportunity to mentor them.
What was it like directing the live version of the song “Vai Na Fé” performed by the singer Negra Li? What were the challenges of this project?
It was a unique experience! It was a professional achievement for me, as I have always worked with choirs, but this one in particular was made up of people I have always been a big fan of and admired professionally and I would never have imagined having confections before having these singers together forming a choir and then becoming a group that is revolutionizing in such a short time the Brazilian music scene.
The biggest challenge was getting a date on everyone’s agenda so that we could record the project that was raised on the same day, do all the executive production and hiring management alone, but on the day I had the support of incredible professionals who made everything lighter, especially the Music producer Rafael Fagundes who was by my side the whole time. He in particular is my friend since I was a teenager, he taught me music and gave me the first opportunity to work professionally with music. And living all this now beside him is a dream come true.
What do you believe differentiates IMBA from other initiatives aimed at training singers and backing vocalists?
The professional baggage of each member already makes the progress of the project take greater directions in fact, because unlike other projects that I have already directed, IMBA is already ready in every way, artistically, in terms of experience because the members are already on the road as professionals a few years and worked with many renowned artists. And now fulfilling a dream of living in a group, something great professionally, taking art in the way we love, which is harmonizing and singing with talented people.
For you, what is the greatest benefit that singers get from going through training at IMBA Original?
Apart from the visibility that the group already has in months of formation in the internal music market, now the entrepreneurial vision of living from art participating in the processes as a whole, not just singing. But everyone has positions in the group, so they end up learning to manage and manage the group’s career.
