Raimundos is a Brazilian band, based in Brasília, Distrito Federal. Their genre mixes hardcore with elements of forro, a popular type of music and dance from Brazil's northeast. The name Raimundos is derived from one of their greatest influences, the Ramones. The band was formed in the late 80s by Rodolfo Abrantes (vocals), Digão (guitars), Canisso (bass) and Fred (drums). After doing some demo tapes, they released their first record by Banguela Records: Raimundos (1994).
