Engenheiros Do Hawaii Bio

Engenheiros do Hawaii ("Engineers from Hawaii" in English) is a Brazilian rock band formed in Porto Alegre in 1985 that achieved great popularity with their ironic, critically-charged songs with heavily semantic lyrics often relying on wordplays. The vocalist and bassist Humberto Gessinger is the only original member still in the band today.

Three architecture college students from UFRGS, Humberto Gessinger (vocal and guitar), Carlos Maltz (drums) and Marcelo Pitz (bass) decided to form a band for a show in a college festival. That performance brought invitations to do new shows and after some gigs in alternative venues in Porto Alegre and a series along Rio Grande do Sul's country region, the Engenheiros do Hawaii recorded their first solo album: Longe Demais das Capitais (Too Far Away From The Capitals) in 1986 (the first recording was a compilation with several local bands, called "Rock Grande do Sul" in 1986). The record's musical direction pointed towards a more New Wave sound, very close to the sound of bands like The Police and Paralamas do Sucesso. It includes the songs "Toda Forma de Poder" (Every Form of Power) and "Sopa de Letrinhas" (Alphabet Soup).
