Kattah is a Brazilian band formed in September, 2006. The name was created by the vocalist Roni Sauaf and represents an Arabian character that has his story related by the songs showing the people way of living, from the illusions to reality.
The idea of mixing Arabian culture elements with Metal and Brazilian Music came when Roni Sauaf proposed to Victor Brochard and Cristian Alex to form a band that counted only on three of them back that day. As they wanted to create something different that sound musical, but also cultural, the result was a singular combination of melodies and rhythms of the Arabian music with the speed and power of Metal.
So Kattah was formed with a characteristic style. All the members know the Brazilian rhythms which become easier to them join the elements with Heavy Metal and show the value of their roots worldwide. After doing some tests, Jean Buzzelo and Pablo Parra joined to the band. Their union and strength added to the technique and perfect relationship with the group made those two musicians the secrets of the perfect union and discipline defined by Roni Sauaf (Vocal), Victor Brochard (Guitars), Pablo Parra (Guitars), Jean Buzzello (Bass) and Cristian Alex (Drums).
The friendship and the will of playing their favorite songs together were the reason to unite the members of Kattah and make the best performance required for a musical show.
And then, after defining their goals, Kattah wants to work in a professional way in order to reach the aims with responsibility and will-power to get all the quality planned for the future.
The group is producing the first album “Eyes of Sand” which will be released worldwide in the first semester of 2010. The first hit “Illusion of Dreams” has been broadcast by many radios in Brazil and it is one of the most played abroad.
The press consulting MS METAL PRESS is responsible for promoting Kattah in Brasil-Europe and also around the world through the radios, magazines, newspapers, internet, and other media vehicles.
