Born in Porto Alegre, on a cold af-
ternoon on 19th June 1980, Tiago
Rubens gained his first musical influen-
ces and experiences on the ‘gaucho’s’
coast, where he grew up close to the
sea and nature. However it was on
the road that the composer, musician
and producer discovered his true ar-
Experimentation, adventure, curiosity
and restlessness were the fuel that
made him dodge his probable musi-
After attempts to compose groups
and unite like-minded people, which
doesn’t always work as people have
different interests and focus, Tiago
felt that his path was to follow a solo
“When I realized that I could write,
play and sing, I realized my auto-
nomy and invested myself in this idea,
knowing well that the project would
never end - something that usually
happens when a band goes through
This assurance came when he entered
the Faculty of Arts in 2008. There, he
delved deep into research of Brazi-
lian literature, poetic structures and
the creation of literary texts. Acade-
mic life enriched his music with poe-
tic depth and theoretical knowledge.
Names such as Vinicius de Moraes,
Julio Cortázar and Caetano Veloso
incited this connection, creating a
greater interest for regional, Brazi-
lian and Latin.
Influenced by the nurturing of a col-
lective authorial scene, and known to
aggregate and organize movements,
Tiago currently seeks various forms
of proliferating artistic and cultural
events involving music in the region,
creating opportunities to spread his
music and collaborating with the work
of other artists.
Today, with four years of solo career
behind him, two EP’s, a record laun-
ched, already awarded for his work,
Tiago and his team are working on
the promotion of their latest show,
entitled - Subtropicarnaval.
TIAGO RUBENS (EP)
The first two EP’s served as a valuable laboratory, and clearly an opportunity to
strengthen the partnership with his friend and producer Thiago Heinrich. After the
release of the EP, Tiago packed his bags and decided to experience Brazil and all
its plurality. There was born the album “SUBTROPICARNAVAL”.
“Subtropicarnaval. So natural. King of revelry in the holy land. Kid charm. Peace from the encounter
in the sound I heard. Lovely groove. Well-being. Samba trace. Child’s soul. Strong beat. Brazils. Uni-
verse being. Go singing to grow. And looms large in the verses, makes us live – about the maximum
of being able to do, see, review, transcend. You know, it reminds me Cartola, Cicero, Beirut, Baleiro,
Gil, Caetano, Moraes Moreira. Complementing influences? Mixture of dreams. In the south of blue
sky. Confetti, glitter, heat, taste of love. Tiago Rubens singing happiness, life, subtropicarnavalizing
(O Jardim Elétrico - Page dedicated to modern Brazilian music)
The album was recorded and produced in partnership with producer
Thiago Heinrich in the city of Parobé, Rio Grande do Sul, during 2012. With eight
tracks, three of which had been released on earlier EPs. The highlight is “Temporal”,
which earned the composer the best music award with lyrics and best arrangement
of the 4th Festival of Public Radios of Brazil, in 2013. The track became part of the
playlist on FM culture 107.7 and then picked up by several radio stations in Brazil
resulting in a far-reached audience for the newly released work.
The Subtropicarnaval show, as well as the disc, weaves a poetic and cultural journey of diverse
‘Brazils’ that coexist in our country. The nuances, the rhythms and the lyrics are a plurality which
transforms the show into a rich presentation as much for the body, as for the mind. The repertoi-
re, the disc in its entirety, plus new songs and reinterpretations of new and already established
artists of Brazilian popular music.
“With the beautiful scenic work of Akemi Ueno and Christiano Pozzer highlighted, Tiago Rubens did
the night show, playing the Subtropicarnaval disc repertoire with ownership. In addition to the well-
-tuned André Paz (bass and vocals) band, Bruno Coelho (percussion), Duda Cunha (drums), Felipe
Cemim (mandolin and cavaco), Gabriel Gorski (guitar), Thiago Heinrich (accordion) and Valentina
Trindade (percussion and vocals), Tiago (voice, guitar and ukulele) had the company of a good team
of guests. Like the singers Jéf - winner of the Breakout Brazil show in 2014, who sang ‘O Equilibrista’
- and Rafa Caetano – in Alvo Certo. The group Quintal - with the voices of Pramit, Raquel Leão,
Tati Portella and Sander Fróis, the last two were Chimarruts band members - enriched the voices
in the final song, Emanar, much applauded, in an emotional moment for musicians and audience.“

In parallel to his solo career, Tiago Rubens collaborates and participates in projects with
other artists such as:
ESCUTA - O SOM DO COMPOSITOR
Collective of popular music composers, an artistic and creative collective that does not
seek for an aesthetic or ideological unity among the participants.
Project created by composers Pramit, Tiago Rubens and the duo Quiçá, se Fosse, by André
Paz and Roger Wiest, in which they present a show where the audience is instigated in
converting the art of subjectivity into monetary value.
AUTORAL SOCIAL CLUBEArtistic collaborative initiative of Porto Alegre, created by Tiago Rubens, which includes
new and well-known names from the music scene in Rio Grande do Sul.
