About Caroline Deslandes

Diogo, Rodrigo and Gabriela were born in an essentially musical family, in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro. From the very beginning, everyone was given the freedom to choose whichever instruments they wanted and learn how to play them. The three of them started playing guitar and taking vocal lessons. Diogo took up drums as Rodrigo took up keyboard and guitar. Lastly, Gabriela began playing the ukulele. The two twin boys started playing in pop rock bands while Gabriela took the path of traditional samba. The trio's videos posted on the Internet earned them an invitation to participate in Rede Globo's Superstar. In the 2016 season of the program, they made it through the semifinals. Their being accepted propelled them to invest in their careers under the family name Melim. In late 2017, they released their first EP with three songs: "Meu Abrigo", "Transmissão de Pensamento" and "Ouvi Dizer". In 2018, the first album of the group came out. The single "Ouvi Dizer," totaled over 60 million plays on Spotify and an incredible 112 million views on YouTube. These are such incredible numbers but are still way behind the 86 million plays and 180 million views of "Meu Abrigo". Soon enough, they will be celebrating their 1-year anniversary within Spotify's Top 50 with both songs.
