Ritmos no liquidificador

Bloco 18 mistura ritmos brasileiros em busca de uma sonoridade global.

O Bloco 18 é um grupo da periferia carioca, que reúne vários músicos consagrados em um só palco. Tem como referência o já conhecido Monobloco, que mistura numa mesma panela ritmos como samba, bloco de rua, axé, funk, rap e rock. "O grupo foi criado pela necessidade de um estilo musical que representasse o país em todos seus ritmos", diz o baterista Romualdo Machado.

O grupo nasceu em setembro de 2007, quando o vocalista Renato Biguli, que hoje faz participações especiais nos shows, chamou músicos de Nova Iguaçu e Belford Roxo para reeditar na Baixada Fluminense a bem-sucedida experiência do Monobloco, do qual é integrante. Os seis fundadores que acompanham o grupo desde sua criação foram seduzindo uma série de músicos na Baixada, além dos três produtores, da jornalista e da fotógrafa que seguem o rastro do Bloco para onde ele for.

Batismo de fogo

O batismo de fogo do bloco aconteceu no Carnatal, um tradicional carnaval fora de época promovido em Nova Iguaçu. Posteriormente, o Bloco 18 tocou na casa de eventos Gregos e Troianos Lounge, na Riosampa, na Escola de Samba Leão de Nova Iguaçu e no centro cultural da UERJ. Mas o grupo sonha grande. "Queremos fazer show em todo o Brasil e na Europa", afirma Nike, o vocalista do grupo. Antes disso, porém, o bloco está investindo na consolidação do repertório.

Atualmente, o Bloco 18 tem um elenco de 17 músicos. Para o produtor Gustavo Ribeiro, esta é a grande virtude e o grande problema do grupo. "A maioria dessas pessoas trabalha em outros locais e muitas vezes têm que faltar ensaios e até mesmo shows", lamenta o produtor.

Bendita sois entre os homens

A última pessoa a entrar no bloco foi a vocalista Andréia da Paz Campos Nascimento, mais conhecida como Andréa Café. A estréia dela se deu no evento intitulado "Ensaio Aberto", que aconteceu no dia 8 de junho, na quadra da Leão de Nova Iguaçu. "Nunca toquei com uma banda tão democrática", diz ela, que é a única mulher no palco.

O Bloco 18 também tem um blog e uma comunidade e um perfil no Orkut. Essas duas mídias são coordenadas pelas jovens repórteres Flávia Ferreira e Mariane Dias. Elas foram convidadas pelo produtor Gustavo Ribeiro. "Vocês vão ser responsáveis por uma nova fase do grupo", disse o produtor ao fazer o convite para as duas jovens repórteres. Flávia Ferreira faz os textos e Mariane Dias, as fotos.

O bloco é dirigido pelos produtores Gustavo Ribeiro e Carla Fabíola, que estão desde o inicio com o grupo. Também fazem parte do Bloco 18 o técnico de som Lobão e o roadie Doca. "Embora desempenhem atividades diferentes, não há melhor nem pior no grupo", afirma Gustavo. "Há pessoas que buscam se aprofundar e tornar-se melhor no que fazem."
