Lucas Arruda was born in 1983 in a Brazilian state called Espírito Santo, near Rio de Janeiro. Coming from a musical family he started playing and listening to music at a very young age. At the age of 13, he was also already playing professionally. After studying electric guitar and playing in various bands, Lucas' passion quickly turned to Rhodes and keyboards, expanding his musical range of skills. At the same time he started a project called Du Black with his older brother Thiago, quickly receiving various local support from people such as Ed Motta, William Magalhães (Banda Black Rio), Robert Lamm (Chicago), and Brazilian soul legend Hyldon. From their growing notoriety, the band began to work with various other artists and singers such as Tamy Macedo and boss nova legend, Leila Pinheiro, leading Lucas to build a recording studio with Thiago in 2011. Now two years later, here comes Sambadi, the first solo album by Lucas Arruda. On this recording he also teamed up with Fabricio di Monaco (Modo Solar), who clearly became a fundamental member. Sambadi is highly-inspired by Rio de Janeiro. As for the musical side, the album almost sounds like a tribute to long-time heroes like Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Marcos Valle, Azymuth, or Robson Jorge and Lincoln Olivetti.
