Os Mutantes Bio

Os Mutantes ("The Mutants") are an influential Brazilian psychedelic rock band that were linked with the Tropicália  movement of the late 1960s. It was formed by two brothers and a vocalist, but has gone through numerous personnel changes throughout its existence. After a hiatus from the late 1970s to the early 2000s, the band reunited for a tour in 2006.

Os Mutantes were formed in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1966 by 2 brothers: Arnaldo Baptista (bass, keyboards and vocals) and Sérgio Dias Baptista (guitar and vocals), and lead singer Rita Lee. They were originally named Six Sided Rockers. The Baptistas' father was a poet and mother a pianist, and the two had previously had a band called The Wooden Faces. Their current name was settled upon immediately before a performance on a Brazilian television program.
