OS nOVoS TrEeS

Os Novos Trees was formed Oct 2009 by guitarist Demetrius “Dennis” Wilson. After many years of playing and recording different styles of music, and growing up in Los Angeles where many cultures of music is accessible, there was one particular type of music that drew Os Novos Trees in: Brazilian Samba/ Bossa Nova and it’s Afro Roots. Os Novos Trees is a conglomerate of American and Brazilian musicians playing original arrangements of Brazil’s finest. The core of Os Novos Trees is Demetrius Dennis Wilson on guitar and Morena Marina Santos on vocals and pandeiro. Morena Marina Santos delivers a natural vocal style and soulful pandeiro rhythms which makes the band uniquely enchanting.
