IPTC INFO
Captionrio Elétrico Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈtɾiw eˈlɛtɾiku] electric trio is a kind of truck or float equipped with a high power sound system and a music group on the roof playing for the crowd. It was created in Bahia specifically for Carnival and it is now used in similar events in other districts and countries. This setup is used in Brazilian Carnival inside the blocos carnavalescos and other festivals in Brazil specially in micaretas . The idea was introduced in 1949 during a carnival in Bahia by the duo Dodô e Osmar Adolfo Nascimento and Osmar Macedo. --- --- --- The origins of the trio elétrico come from the "dupla eletrica" Electric Pair or Electric Duo" the two friends Adolfo Antônio Nascimento Dodô and Osmar Álvares de Macêdo who decided in 1950 to fix an old Ford Model T to perform their self-made electric instrument known as pau eletrico electric log during Bahia carnival. They drove through the streets playing music powered by the car battery. The show took place in the city centre at 5 pm on carnival Sunday and attracted a large crowd. The name "trio elétrico" was coined in 1951 when Dodô and Osmar invited a friend to perform with them the architect Temístocles Aragão. They played through Salvador in a Chrysler pick-up. That is how the electric pair became the electric trio. Though the name was created for the band it ended up being the name of their invention.
