Dialeto biography
Founded in Săo Paulo, Brazil in 1987 - Disbanded in 1994 - Reformed in 2006

DIALETO is a Heavy Prog Power Trio formed in Brazil in 1987 by Nelson Coelho on guitar and vocals, Andrei Ivanovic on fretless bass and Miguel Angel on drums and backing vocals.

Nelson descends from Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese and Brazilians; Andrei descends from Yugoslavians and Miguel from Spaniards and Haitians. They all were raised in the city of Săo Paulo, Brazil, where people, migrated from all over the world, live together exchanging their cultural and life experiences. They also grew up listening to great American and European rock bands such as King Crimson, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Santana, Frank Zappa, Black Sabbath, Mahavishnu Orchestra and many others.

With all this cultural background and also with influences from folk eastern music the band constructed their original and peculiar sound based on the ideal of cultural and ethnic integration, on the concept that the world, as seen from the space, has no frontiers and any language is completely understandable if translated to music.

After playing in bands from the local underground rock scene like Zero, Akira S, Sotaque, Vultos and Okoto, Nelson, Miguel and Andrei formed DIALETO in 1987, releasing the LP "Dialect" in 1991 and playing in many venues until 1994.

In 2006, they returned and, after the great reception of the audience, decided to move forward releasing in 2008 their first CD, recovering the songs from the 90's, including "Existence", song inspired by a traditional theme from Pakistan and Afghanistan, which the chorus "Will Exist Forever" names the album.

The band is now working on their new album named "Chromatic Freedom" with exciting new compositions, following and deepening the path constructed before.

4 stars An interesting tribute live album!

In 2017 Dialeto created a wonderful album entitled 'Bart'k in Rock', in which they rearranged several pieces of this legendary composer and morphed them with rock. That same year the band went on tour to promote the album, and in some shows another legendary musician, former King Crimson member David Cross, joined them so together they gave the audience an intimate and ecstatic experience in which the band offered the previously mentioned Bart'k songs, along with some Crimson tunes.

The Brazilian trio opened the show with 4 Bart'k pieces. 'Roumanian Folk Dances 3' is the first and here they bring a somber atmosphere, which curiously has some crimsonian nuances, to my ears. Later it becomes like a doom terror score. Interesting. 'Roumanian Folk Dances 2' has some 30 hesitant seconds and then the music morphs to that rock realm it now belongs. The faster it gets the more interesting, a nice rendition to Bart'k, without a doubt. 'Roumanian Folk Dances 4' is the longest of this Roumanian pieces. Once again there are some soft introductory seconds and then a change. Nice rhythm with bass and drums while guitar plays the notes we will remember.

Dialeto alone continue with 'Mikrokosmos 149', soft bass lines and jazzy drums soon to be complemented by guitar. The sound is catchy, addictive. A very nice adaptation that might in fact be one of my favorite moments in this concert. Then when 'Mikrokosmos 113' is about to be performed, David Cross joins the band and the rest of the concert is made by a quartet. It is evident that the addition of a violin creates a richer sound and can change the atmospheres in a very positive way. The bass lines here are as addictive as the previous track, but now violin and guitar make a perfect duo while unstoppable drums give the energy and even tension the band and audience need. 'Mikrokosmos 78' is the longest of the Bart'k arrangements. It has a somber feeling in the first minutes, Cross is an expert of doing that in the first parts of the songs. After three minutes Dialeto enter and the direction of the piece changes, no more dark atmospheres there, now we can listen to even some gypsy-like nuances along with the evident rock that is inherent in the sound. It progresses and gives us a pretty nice experience.

'An Evening in the Village' and 'The Young Bride' are the last two Bart'k pieces performed in this show. The first one has an interesting rock sound but with a kind of Western sound, maybe produced by the drummer. The second one is much more interesting to my ears, mid-tempo with some guitar explosions and a clear prog rock sound which remind me a bit of Crimson (again) and also After Crying.

Now the second part of the concert is the tribute to King Crimson, or to the same David Cross. The first track performed is the disarming 'Exiles', Dialeto and Cross added some electronic atmospheres that probably worked as hypnotics, and after 3 minutes the heavy part begins so then we can notice this is actually Exiles and not an improvisation. The arrangements by Dialeto are very good, so it is not a simple copycat, is a well-arranged cover that gives us 10 minutes of great music. In fact, the vocal work is also wonderful. Then 'Tonk' was performed, this is not a Crimson tune but one from David Cross' solo catalogue. A short but vibrant piece that originally has the collaboration of Fripp and Hammill, but here Dialeto put their original grain of sand.

Two of the most iconic moments of Cross in KC come next: 'The Talking Drum' and 'Larks Tongues in Aspic Pt. II', as you can imagine, the moments of tension, doubt and power are shared, but with some little different adaptations made by Dialeto. The concert finishes with the mighty 'Starless', sung by Fred Barley in a great form. A piece that belongs to heaven, an extraordinary anthem of progressive rock in which David Cross participated, and now executed with a trio of very talented musicians.

A great concert, to say the least!

5 stars When Dialeto released their previous album, 'Bart'k In Rock', famed ex-King Crimson violinist David Cross made an appearance on one song, and in my review I said that he had made such an impact I really wish he has played on more. Well, at this concert on 22nd July 2017, he stuck around for way more than just one song. Coming onto stage in time for the sixth number on the CD and staying there all the way through to the end. The Brazilian trio are mostly instrumental, and here they were promoting their last album, which took compositions by B'la Bart'k and then moved them into their own genre, with lots of improvisation. Interestingly, one of the songs featured on this CD is 'Mikrokosmos 78', which Dialeto hadn't worked on, and it was only after the suggestion of Cross that a version was put together especially for this concert.

Cross is a very busy musician, but one hopes that he sticks around for more gigs and recording with the trio, as they all blend their skills so very well together, to create an album that is exciting, invigorating, and just bloody great fun to listen to. The interaction between all four is incredible, as they extend and move away from songs and take them into new areas. The first eight songs are by Diaelto, and then we have four from King Crimson and one from David's own band. 'Starless' is instantly recognisable, and gets a reaction from the crowd; it is the perfect way to close out the concert (with drummer Fred Bayley showing that he is a fine singer, and it is a choice for the band to be instrumental as opposed to lack of skill). But before then everyone has been treated to an amazing concert, with four great musicians bouncing ideas off each other, allowing the music to take them where it needs to go. Dialeto have been building quite a reputation, and deservedly so, and hopefully this work with Cross will see them being recognised by a far wider audience, as it is certainly deserved.

3 stars DIALETO is a band from Brazil who have changed their sound it seems almost from album to album. I have their debut and the one previous to this one I'm reviewing and really enjoyed both. "Bartok In Rock" is influenced by Bartok and his Folk stuff and it's all instrumental. A trio of drums, bass and guitar with a surprise guest in David Cross who plays violin on the opening song. The opener and closer are by far my favourites and for my tastes this one pales when compared to the two I have. Apparently there was a lot of improvising going on here I just wish Cross was on for the whole album.

"Mikrokosmos 113" opens with that violin slicing away as rumbling drums then a full sound kick in. Suddenly it's bass and drums only then the violin returns. Themes are repeated. I like the guitar before 3 minutes. A nice energetic opener. "Mikrokosmos 149" opens with bass and drums as the guitar joins in. I like the tone of it but that will change.

"An Evening In The Village" has some interesting sounds to start which are somewhat experimental before it kicks in after a minute. It ends like it began. "Roumanian Folk Dances" is divided into six parts ending with a catchy number. Not big on this suite but there is some variety and I like some of it. "The Young Bride" ends it. It sort of trips along and I keep thinking it's going to break out and we do get a heavier sound eventually.

This just doesn't do much for me sadly despite some stellar moments. Again you should check out that opening track with David Cross on it.

4 stars

What we have here is the latest release from Brazilian trio Dialeto, whose last album 'The Last Tribe' was excellent. I was a little surprised that it has taken four years for them to come back with the follow-up, but that may have something to do with the fact that only guitarist Nelson Coelho was in the band last time around. He has now been joined by drummer Fred Barley and bassist Gabriel Costa, which makes them more how they used to sound, as for the last album the bassist had been replaced by touch guitar. This album is an attempt by Dialeto to take compositions by Béla Bartók and then move them into their own genre, with lots of improvisation. Bartók is considered to be one of the most important Hungarian composers of the last century, and through his collection and analytical study of folk music, he was one of the founders of comparative musicology, which later became ethnomusicology.

With six of the ten songs named Roumanian Folk Dances it isn't hard to see where the music originally stemmed from, but here it has been taken to new levels as jazz fusion and progressive rock takes this as a base and then moves it into quite new areas. The whole album is fresh, exciting and interesting, taking the listener through many twists and turns, and by the end I found myself thinking that I loved this so much that I really ought to discover the originals and see just what Dialeto had done to them to transform them into this modern style of music. David Cross makes an appearance on the first number, and my only wish was that he had could have stayed for the complete album as he had so much impact, but as it is this really is an album to savour.

4 stars This is DIALETO's third studio album and their first to be released by Moonjune Records. It's pretty cool that Fabio from VIOLETA DE OUTONO and the INVISIBLE OPERA COMPANY OF TIBET mastered this album, he's one of my favourite musicians. My only experience with this band was with their debut which i'm a big fan of but here we are some five years later and unlike the debut there are no vocals this time around. This truly is a power trio bringing to mind the music of later day KING CRIMSON with that muscular instrumental work with prominant bass, intricate touch guitar along with drums and guitar. This is often dark and somewhat heavy, but very melodic and relaxing as well. It really has grown on me from what I thought was a 3 star album to a 4 star recording.

"Windmaster" has become one of my favourite. Talk about a feel-good tune that features some killer distorted guitar leads. "Dorian Grey" has this ground-shaking bass to start before the drums then guitar join in. A tune that takes it's time yet is all of that. Man these guys would be great to see live. "The Last Tribe" is the title track of course but also the shortest song on here at just under 2 minutes. This picks up quickly and is quite catchy. "Lydia In The Playground" is a relaxing track but there are some outbursts that provide some cool contrasts. Some beautiful guitar on this one. "Unimpossible" is the longest song at just under 8 minutes. It does as Ivan mentions in his review sound like Santana early on, mostly the guitar tone in my opinion. It starts to build after 2 minutes until they are ripping it up.

"Tarde Demais" really reminds me of IRON MAIDEN for about a minute and it's again the guitar tone as he solos in a relaxed manner before it changes. Such a calming, laid back track. "Vintitreis" opens with what sounds like vibes as bass joins in then takes over before it kicks in. Love the sound of the guitar on this one. Great tune. "Whereisit" opens with some guitar that has character as the bass rumbles and the drums pound. Cool stuff right here. One of the heavier tunes. "Sand Horses" is complex and building. Check out the bass ! The guitar starts to solo before 1 1/2 minutes than it's the bass' turn. "Chromaterius" is intricate to start as this atmosphere rolls in like a fog. It kicks in hard just before 2 minutes. Nice.

Well worth checking out if your into the all-instrumental thing.

4 stars Brazilian trio DIALETO was formed back in 1987, but their initial phase didn't result in any official recordings to be released before the band hit an elongated phase of hiatus. In 2006 they decided to have another go however, and in 2008 they self released their debut album "Will Exist Forever". Since then a further two studio productions have seen the light of day. "The Last Tribe" is the most recent of these, and was issued through Moonjune Records in 2013.

Dialeto appears to have settled into a well defined sound as of 2013, utilizing a fairly vast canvas to craft their own brand of harder edged, instrumental progressive rock. Economic, sparse and effective on one hand yet richly layered with plentiful of details on the other, they merrily wander wherever they want to go, to the enjoyment of listeners with a taste for easily accessible music and challenging escapades both. A CD that should appeal to fans of progressive rock looking for something subtly different and occasionally demanding, especially those amongst that crowd who prefer their music to be of the instrumental variety.

3 stars An instrumental album from what I am led to believe is a seasoned band of veterans from Brazil, here adding a new instrumentalist to the group, "Touch Guitarist" Jorge Pescara. This touch guitar sounds and looks to me like a Chapman Stick--but, whatever. The music here is very much in the vein of so many current and recent Dutch bands except maybe a little more bluesier. The music is interesting though, like a lot of blues, the recording has been performed such that every mistake made by each individual musician (and there are a lot of mistakes here) is right out in fornt and open.

1. "Windmaster" (6:26) opens the album with a nice series of notes from a guitar (though possibly it is the Touch Guitar) before the bass lines, drums, and pedal-volume-controlled lead guitar notes (though, again, it could be the pedal-controlled volume of the treble side of the Touch Guitar, if it has the double pickup plugs like my Chapman Stick had) all join in. At 1:50 the lead guitarist goes into a heavy solo--which lasts pretty much the full length of the song's remainder. Every time I hear this song I find myself wondering, "Is this going to be a Post Rock/Math Rock album?" (8/10)

2. "Dorian Grey" (4:27) Nothing too complicated but strong, catchy riffs and melodies. The competent classic rock guitar solo is right where it should be. (9/10)

3. "The Last Tribe" (1:56) the title song, brief as it is, starts off just like a varied version of song 6, "Tarde Demias," before falling into martial pace to support another, albeit nice extended solo from the lead guitarist (this one having a second background lead shadowing it.) (7/10)

4. "Lydia in The Playground" (5:20) poor sound recording (scratchy) on first lead guitar. Second lead is nice, great sound. Third lead is also nicely played, recorded well. Rolling "Fretless-like" bass throughout is ear-catching. (8/10)

5. "Unimpossible" (7:46) opens ploddingly, as if unsure what pace and style it wants to play--before settling into a very classic blues style. The effect is rather unsettling as it doesn't really work very well---too late-night lounge like. Even when the drums join in and things get raunchy and the bass-line gets very interesting the song just never seems to get there. Not until the 6:35 mark does the guitarist finally deliver us from the hell of mediocrity. (7/10)

6. "Tarde Demias" (3:40) uses some echoing effects to very positive effect, and also uses several very catchy melody lines (bass and lead guitar). At 1:24 lead guitarist Nelson Coelho takes off on one of his solos, leaving the rest of the band to fend for themselves, which, again, they do not do so well. The solo is good. The band comes back together for a nice finish. (8/10)

7. "Vintitrels" (4:19) by now the blues rock format is overstaying its welcome. The music's stark, sparsely treated sound is getting a bit old and grating. The drummer always seems to be following someone else, the bass (Touch Guitar) player is having trouble keeping time (let's face it: he's no metronome, and by now we've discovered: he's no Tony Levin. As a former Stick player, I can say that there is very little here that impresses me.) and the guitarist often seems to wander off into his own world. (As a matter of fact, perhaps each of the three instrumentalists can be accused of being guilty of such.) (7/10)

8. "Where Is It" (5:11) is perhaps the tightest, most Crimson-esque song on the album, which is a nice change and, by now, surprise. Lots of whole-group staccato rhythm and chord playing. The lead guitar solo beginning at the 3:35 mark is also one of his better soli--though, once again, as Nelson goes off into his own zone it seems that the rest of the band fragments and threatens to disintegrate. Fortunately, they come back together for the final 20 seconds. (9/10)

9. "Sand Horses" (4:07) finds the band travelling back again into classic rock time for some standard bass-drums & guitar jamming. Not quite Hendrix or Stevie Ray. (7/10)

10. "Chromaterius" (3:42) uses its first two minutes to let Jorge show us a little of his two handed Touch guitar skill. Dueling a little with Nelson makes it a little interesting, until the music switches over to a very heavy, very lumbering rhythm section--though this section contains what is easily the most impressive drumming and guitar playing on the album. (8/10)

Favorite songs: "Whereisit," "Dorian Grey," and "Windmaster.

Though the album has grown on me considerably upon repeated listens (the mistakes are less glaring/bothersome and more accepted as part of the musical presentation), The Last Tribe is, for me, a 3.5 star album, rated down for sometimes poor recording, for the band members' timing inconsistencies, their breakdowns in 'group weave', and for their occasional lapses into each their own separate universes.

5 stars Oh. My. God. What we have here is yet another awesome band that have been uncovered by Leonardo, this time from Brazil. This instrumental trio comprise Nelson Coelho (guitar), Jorge Pescara (touch guitars) and Miguel Angel (drums) and in many ways are quite unlike anything I have come across before. Apparently this band originally formed in 1987, but were on ice for a long period before getting back together in 2006, after which they released a couple of albums. Last year original bassist Andrei Ivanovic left, to be replaced by Jorge who instead plays touch guitar and this is their first album since then. What makes these guys so unique, is the way that they are bringing together so many different styles and forms of music in a way that is progressive, instrumental, heavy and containing so many influences that one doesn't really know where to start.

So, with an instrumental trio it isn't unusual for there to be plenty of jazz structures and tendencies, and that is indeed the case. But, there are times when these guys move from 13/8 into standard 4/4 without missing a beat and all of a sudden we have shredders that are moving the music in a very different direction indeed. It is slow, it is reflective, it is hard, it is in your face. Miguel is the one person attempting very hard to keep the others in line, as Jorge is not adverse to providing a secondary lead line, very different to what one would expect to a 'normal' bassist (although he can also hunker down when the time is right). But Nelson is a real star, with a wonderfully fluid touch that is reminiscent of the great Allan Holdsworth, yet often much more in the face in the style of Satriani.

This album could only ever be described as progressive, yet there are only the three instruments on show, which just goes to show what can be delivered by those who have totally mastery and understanding of what they need to achieve. This may be their third album in recent years, but the first to get a full international release, and I know that we are going to hear a great deal more from these guys. Just stunning. www.moonjune.com

3 stars Brazilian trio Dialeto was found in 1987 in Sao Paulo as Dialect by guitarist/singer Nelson Coelho, drummer Miguel Angel and bassist Andrei Ivanovic, playing music inspired by the likes of King Crimson, Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin.After an eponymous LP on Faunus Records in 1991 the band was put on ice (Ivanovic performed for a short time with O Terço), only to be ressurected some 15 years later as Dialeto.The sole release of the group was reworked in 2008 with additional guitar and violin parts, while the vocals were re-recorded.The album was then released during the year as ''Will exist forever'' on the Brazilian label Rock Symphony.

Dialeto proposed an intricate and powerful Heavy Prog with strong psychedelic vibes, some Ethnic orientations and lots of passionate grooves akin to KING CRIMSON, split in 11 short pieces and based on both mid- and up-tempo rhythmic tunes.The addition of violins remind me of ANKH, while the music is very atmospheric, although the vocals are pretty accented, yet they do work well in such a dark enviroment.Pretty great guitar moves by Coelho with an evident FRIPP-like approach, containg sharp riffs and angular rhythmic tones with limited but also interesting solos.Some of the tracks are rather vocal-oriented with a slight Post-Punk aura, but the memorable grooves in them are pretty damn great.However there is some balanced space for guitar-oriented instrumental madness as well.''Existence'' is also based on traditional Afghan Music and Dialeto have transformed it into a fine Ethnic rocker, while a pair of other cuts have obvious Ethnic vibes in the guitar runs.The problem with all these bands is that their sound is a bit sterile at moments, lacking efficient diversity.

A nice album for all KING CRIMSON maniacs or anyone into Progressive Rock with a guitar-styled edge.Rhythmic, quirky, fairly psychedelic and dynamic music all the way.Recommended.

4 stars Instrumental music can be very tricky. Usually you have two roads to follow: the well-crafted road and the jamming away nonsense road.

I have known Dialeto for quite some time and I even reviewed their latest album Chromatic Freedom (2010). I confess that when I have heard that the band was going full instrumental I was a bit worried that they would go down the second road. I also liked their unique and 'weird' style.

Dialeto has new 'wheels' to ride. In the past, the driver of the bass was Andrei Ivanovic, he used to play the fretless bass. In The Last Tribe (2013) Dialeto's low notes were played by Jorge Pescara (I already reviewed his latest solo album progshine.net/2013/06/review- jorge-pescara-knight-without.html). Jorge doesn't exactly play only the bass, he plays the Megatar and touch-guitars. They're like the Chapman Stick, but in Dialeto's The Last Tribe (2013) they fulfill the bass role with an extra. The rest of the band is still the same with Nelson Coelho (guitars) and Miguel Angel (drums).

The Last Tribe (2013) was recorded between the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 and it's their first international record, being released by Moonjune Records. The album was produced and Mixed by Nelson Coelho and the band and was mastered by Fabio Golfetti (the leader of Violeta De Outono). Not much different from their latest album. Nelson is also responsible for the great cover artwork. The album was released in the format that they call eco-pack. For me it's just a cardboard envelope. Which is kind sad, cause the cover art would be great in a well-made digipack.

But what really matters is the music inside The Last Tribe (2013). And I'm happy to say that my worries turned out to be unfounded. The music on the album is good and interesting. 'Windmaster' opens the album and it's like the track is speaking to you, and it's very clear that Jorge added a new dimension to Dialeto's sound.

Some tracks like 'Dorian Grey', 'Lydia In The Playground', 'Whereisit' and 'Sand Horses' are dense and full of guitar layers everywhere, but never forgetting the melodies. In general The Last Tribe (2013) is very well balanced, the songs are not too lengthy, this is clever, the listener will not get tired.

'Unimpossible' is the longest track with 7'47. It's a bit nonsense till the second minute when the track becomes intense and interesting. Some tracks, like 'Tarde Demais' start with no drums and are focused on the guitar melodies, but as soon as the drums appear they make everything better.

'Vintitreis' remind me of the 'old' Dialeto and it's my favorite on the album. 'Chromaterius' closes the album as a soundtrack to a thriller movie. Once again they fool the listener and the drums comes kicking hard towards the end of the song. The touchguitars play as if they were a cello and everything sounds like a mini orchestra. A good ending, indeed. I'm happy to say that Dialeto's The Last Tribe (2013) is based on good, well-crafted and melodic compositions rather than free jamming. It makes you want to listen to the album again.

Dialeto's could have been travelling on thin ice with this album, instead, they're now driving on the safe highways of good music. Recommended!
