Tetine was formed in 1995 in São Paulo, Brazil by artists Eliete Mejorado and Bruno Verner. Infused with a contemporary Brazilian radicalism that pushes the boundaries of a hybrid vocabulary, Tetine have created a multitude of music & performance works from the spoken word to electronica, including ritualistic performances, films and video.
Since they have released numerous records and performaned live for museums, galleries and festivals such as Palais De Tokyo in Paris, The Wire - Adventures In Modern Music festival in Chicago, Museu Serralves in Porto, Liverpool Biennal, Hebbel Am Ufer in Berlin.
In 2007 Soul Jazz Records released A História Da Garça – a mutant electro punk funk 12’ single with two new tracks. A few months later Tetine perform alongside Dizzie Rascal, Deize Tigrona and Buraka Som Sistema at Casa Da Música in Porto, Portugal and begin a series of shows in Europe. Highlights include the first installment of Tropical Punk – an exhibit of radical contemporary Brazilian art and music with live shows and screenings curated by the band at Whitechapel Art Gallery as well as performances for Pablo Macho Magazine, Vice in Sweden amongst others.
The beginning of 2008 finds Tetine releasing their second single I go to the doctor on Soul Jazz Records alongiside an amazing remix of the track by CSS. The single is a taster for Tetine's new album Let Your X’s Be Y’s released on Soul Jazz.
