In the fall of 2010, out of a mutual fascination for the musical style of Brazilian Bossa Nova, Samba, and Latin rhythms, Sister Rogers was formed. Although the group was composed of members whose ethnic backgrounds spanned across various Latin American countries, Bossa Nova and Samba were new and uncharted regions of music and culture to them. It can be said that Sister Rogers was, at its conception, a learning exercise; a voyage into a sound that was embraced and ultimately transformed.
The band began developing a new sound, which ironically stemmed from an old and long standing genre of music, drawing inspiration from artists such as Chico Buarque and Baden Powell.
They began playing in the Los Angeles area with a sound that was initially acoustically dominated. This was a deliberate effort on the bands part with the aim at familiarizing themselves with samba rhythms, jazz-like harmonies, and becoming comfortable with its ambiance. Shortly thereafter Sister Rogers took the next step and incorporated electrical instrumentation into their music.
Today, Sister Rogers still holds strong to its Latin rhythm roots while simultaneously integrating modern day influences such as, Blonde Redhead, Air, Serge Gainsbourg, and Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB), which emerged in the late 1960’s. Sister Rogers is now an assortment of electric and organic instrumentation, which they blend to create an original sound while still maintaining the Brazilian Bossa Nova, and Samba elements present.
In the summer of 2013 Sister Rogers released their self-titled EP featuring their latest single, Midnight Sands. The band continues to grow artistically, challenge itself creatively, and move forward collectively.
