Formed in Rio de Janeiro in the '90s, the Família Roitman had their first album released in 1995, O Samba Nas Regras da Arte, also released in Europe, U.S., and Japan (Buda). The album revealed the intention of young musicians to pay tribute to samba with humor and musical competence. Two years later, the trio toured Brazil with the Pixinguinha project, together with Nelson Sargento. Their second release, Coisa da Antiga, continues to affectionately regard the samba genre through compositions by masters such as Elton Medeiros, Délcio Carvalho, Maurício Carrilho, Paulo César Pinheiro, Paulinho da Viola, Chico Buarque, and Noel Rosa.
