Zuco 103 is a pioneer in Brazilectro, a fusion of samba, jazz and electronic music with influences of worldmusic, dub and drum’n bass. It makes Zuco one of the leaders of tropical electronic music. Since 1999 the group works on their unique sound and today the group sounds closer than ever.

Zuco 103 started in 1999 with singer Lilian Viera, keyboard player Stefan Schmid and drummer Stefan Kruger. The collaboration started in the acid jazz world around groups like SFeQ and New Cool Collective. You could see Zuco’s sound like a modernized variation of the tropicalia-movement in Brazil in the late 60’s. In contrast to the brazilian movement, Zuco gets its inspiration from western pop and rock music. Meanwhile the group has mixed drum’n bass and dub with samba and bossa, which is surprisingly danceable. They played at dutch festivals like Lowlands and North Sea Jazz and international festivals like Fuji Rock and Rock Werchter.

“ Dat de band met zo'n open aanpak een bruisend en spannend concert weet neer zetten bewijst nog eens de klasse van Zuco 103. “
