Biography

João Barone, founding member of Os Paralamas do Sucesso (1982), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Barone is considered one of the most influential drummers in Brazil, opening the gates of a new local drum scene with his rock-reggae-Afro-Brazilian mesh of styles, with 20 albums, a never-ending schedule of concerts and several extra-band work. After recording a pioneering drum video, in 1997, Barone started to clinic off and on. In 2010 is released his signed model snare drum by Tama, after long lasting partnership. Recently, Barone lined up with The Police legendary guitarist Andy Summers and Brazilian bass singer Rodrigo Santos in a tribute act: Call The Police, touring Brazil and South America for several years in a row. Due to the pandemic, Os Paralamas are doing several “lives” on their social channels until concerts are allowed again. Call The Police shows were postponed to mid-2021.
