Based on the homonymous disc, the Venus show takes the album experience to the theater in a modern operetta that includes scenic interventions and cosmic scenographies.
Tupimasala is a band from Sao Paulo, Brazil, formed in 2014. The group released their first album, Vênus, in april 2017.
Their musical style has been described as a "great brazilian pop surprise" by Billboard that also elected Vênus as one of the best album of the year, alongside Kendrick Lamar, Charli XCX and the brazilian artist Criolo.
Conceived as an electronic operetta for the dance floor, the album is split into three acts: Eclipse, Transit of Venus and Morning Star. All its tracks are women names that tell stories of issues that are still considered taboos in society such as depression ("Branca"), female masturbation ("Gabriela"), police violence ("Graça da Sé") and recreational use of marijuana ("Joana Paraná"), for example.
The original members of Tupimasala included Samantha Machado as the vocalist, Adam Esteves on guitar, vocals and synthesizer, Sabrina Homrich on drums and Hector de Paula on bass and synthesizer.
