Gaby Amarantos is a singer and dancer from the city of Belém, in the northern state of Pará and comes from a family of Samba dancers. She's recorded a few CDs, a DVD, has been featured in newspapers and magazines and has made several appearances on Brazilian television shows.

Wie zegt dat de Nederlandse bandscene weinig te bieden heeft, heeft Atreides nog niet gehoord. Deze formatie van vier jongens en een zangeres staat garant voor bijzonder energieke live performances waarbij zowel publiek als band compleet in de muziek opgaat.
