TRIBVTO is a portuguese music band, established in February 2017, in Bishop's Stortford, a village in the East of England.
The group emerges in a community with a strong portuguese presence, by a series of fortunate events and the complicity between its members in common motivation to play and share portuguese music.
From very early on, it presents itself as a tribute group to portuguese music and culture, being guided by the interpretation/adaptation and live performances of well known themes of the lusitanian music, in its own character, thus fulfilling the aim of spreading the local portuguese culture.
TRIBVTO was able to have their first opportunity to perform live on stage at the most important celebration of its home town, and from then on started an ascending course of various performances in events, where the receptivity of the audience has always encouraged the musical journey that took place.
The aforementioned musical complicity between the members of the band also gives reason to a new established need - the creation of original songs. Today, in addition to the live concerts, TRIBVTO as began recording originals in order to launch themselves in the musical market with their own portuguese identity.
It is difficult not to be astonished at how 6 different paths that started all in Portugal, from north to south, crossed across borders, in a small English village, joining the TRIBVTO members in a musical project that represents Portugal in the UK and across borders.
