History

Pyata (vocals), Bruno (guitar), and Arthur (bass), friends from different parts of Brazil, met in Santa Barbara and started a band. The different cultures inside Brazil were beneficial to the music the band creates. The mix got even better with the addition of American born CJT (drums), Ruben Martinez (flute, percussion), and Gustavo (sax, keys, percussion), all of whom are influenced by Mexican music and culture, and Melissa Kepen (backing vocals) a beauty from Rio de Janeiro. With this current lineup, Beleza Pura keeps entertaining and gaining popularity in Santa Barbara.
