Tetine are formed by Brazilian musicians/artists Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado who have been living in Hackney in East London since 2000. The pair met in 1995 in Brazil while taking part in the local underground art post-punk scene of São Paulo and Belo Horizonte, and since then, they have been producing a multitude of singular works and actions through the hybrid universes of performance art, music, film / video and poetry. With more than 20 albums released by different record labels in Europe and Brazil (Soul Jazz Records, Slum Dunk, Mr Bongo, Bizarre Music) and several 12-inch singles and compilations, Tetine have been performing in festivals, art galleries, clubs, cinemas and theatres around the world, as well as making appearances on radio shows and devising hybrid and experimental projects around their music and art.

The duo's presentations, performances, films, installations or other actions have been shown in renowned institutions, museums and cultural venues including the National Museum of Contemporary Art & Sternessen Museum in Oslo, The Wire's Adventures In Modern Music in Chicago, Gorky Theatre in - Berlin, Barbican Centre in London, Venn Festival in Bristol, Serralves Museum in Porto, Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, Palais De Tokyo in Paris, Liverpool Biennial, Bordeaux Biennial, Triennale di Milano, Atelier Claus in Brussels, South London Gallery in London among many others.

Tetine have also been instrumental in bringing the Brazilian underground music scene to the attention of the UK for a number of years. The duo compiled, produced and mixed the first ever album of Baile Funk (Funk Carioca) outside of Brazil - Slum Dunk Presents Funk Carioca Mixed by Tetine, 2004 released on Mr Bongo Records, as well as the acclaimed The Sexual Life of The Savages - an essential primer to early-80s Post-Punk from São Paulo, released on Soul Jazz Records in 2006. More recently, Tetine have also self-released a new collection of obscure post-punk cassette tapes entitled Colt 45 – Underground Post Punk, Tropical Tapes, Lo-Fi Electronics & Other Sounds from Brazil (1983-1993) on their own label Slum Dunk Music.

What makes Tetine so good is that their off-beat, messy quality makes them natural, seemingly effortless, and therefore beautiful.” - Vanessa Labi URB, Chicago
