The first night of concerts at Arena Itu was on this Friday (2) with strong attractions in the world of electronic and country music. Sevenn and JetLag excited the crowd with their modern remixes, while the country attractions drove the public wild with Henrique & Juliano and João Bosco & Vinícius. The shows ended this Saturday morning (3), with the day brightening.
Who opened the night was the duo Jetlag Music, formed by DJs Paulo Velloso and Thiago Mansur. “We have a lot of synergy with parties like this. Fortunately, we are always invited to perform throughout Brazil at important events of this type like the one in Itu”, they told Terra. After the show, they remembered that they were at Rodeio Itu in 2018 and 2019 and returned this year, after the pandemic, with the responsibility of opening the event.
“First day of rodeo, first show. The responsibility was great, but we managed to deliver. We made the crowd warm up”, said Paulo Velloso. “We missed this stage, this beautiful energy”, he added. The duo broke out in 2017 after releasing the remix of the song “Trem Bala”, by singer Ana Vilela. They have also recorded “Zé do Caroço”, a hit in the voice of Seu Jorge, with singer Anitta.
Then it was the turn of the duo João Bosco & Vinícius to take the stage. In the repertoire, the biggest hits of the two, such as “Chora Me Liga” and “Parece Castigo”, as well as songs from their most recent work “Partnerships”, such as “Quase Recaída”. The album was released in full this Friday (2). “In addition to prioritizing romanticism, we thought of bringing a very current and modern content. We consider this one of the best repertoires we’ve ever done”, stated Vinícius, about the new DVD, whose name comes from the friendship relationship that exists between the two, precursors of the university sertanejo. With 15 years of career, at least 35 hits in their career, the duo occupies the list of the 15 most played artists on radio in the last decade.
Henrique & Julian
The show preceded another blockbuster attraction: Henrique & Juliano. There was no lack of the hit that is booming on the radio “Evento Cancelado”. “Musical Manifesto”, “Scratch” and “A greatest saudade” were among the news. But there was also space for older songs like “Mais Amor Menos Drama”, “Cuida Bem Dela”, “Até Você Voltar” and “Flor eo Beija-flor”, to give that comfort to fans who miss the muse a lot. Maria Mendonca.
Sevenn ended the night on the main stage. For the presentation, the Californian DJ Kevin stated that he had prepared an “explosion”, with a lot of new music. Previously, Sevenn consisted of two brothers, Kevin and Sean. But Sean walked away from the music and Kevin continued to play the project. Today, he accumulates more than 200 thousand followers on Instagram. The party continued until Saturday morning (3) and Sevenn was responsible for the sound in the main cabin for the most resistant who still wanted to party at 7 am.
