Mature and with plenty of solo career accomplishments, the brothers today prioritize something they couldn’t achieve at the band’s heyday twenty years ago, due to intense routines and their age, enjoying every moment as if it was their last.

“When we launched KLB it was an instant hit. Face to face with music The pain of this love It sold one and a half million copies. It was crazy. I was 20, Leandro was 18, Bruno was 15. And as much as we enjoyed it so much, I wish I had enjoyed it more because it was so good,” says Keiko, 43.

“When I was a teenager, I was in training. I was so detached and left everything to my brothers, I was just worried about doing my part and that’s it. I wasn’t involved in the creation project. I was thinking about going out, doodling, teenage things. Today I have another head.” I want to enjoy every second of this moment as if there is no tomorrow,” explains Bruno, currently a father ravi And 38 years old.

Dedicate back to father
The band will soon release an unreleased song after the tour, and are planning to record a new album. The three are moved when they say the comeback was a request from their productive father Franco SkornavkaHe passed away in 2018.

“My parents have always been our biggest supporters. My dad really wanted us to go back and do this tour. Everything we live today was his wish. If he was here, he would jump and cry for joy. In fact, it’s because I believe in the afterlife. I know it takes root and vibrates for us.” He was always telling us he wouldn’t let it die inside of us, and he said we had talent,” Bruno recalls.

It’s hard to say anything without mentioning my father. He has always been my guide, my professional and personal reference, my founder, and my career advisor. His departure in his personal life was devastating and in his professional life aroused suspicion. But we were able to find a team that provides the professional security that my dad was bringing in,” says Kiko.
“My dad really wanted this back, but he got sick and couldn’t convince us anymore. I’m in mourning to this day, but life goes on and I need to keep doing what I love, which is music “confirms Leandro.

“This reunion was his wish, who came to shout several times that we have to go back, that the break was stupid. Today I don’t consider him stupid, it was a necessary break so we can go back today,” continues Kiko.

On this break from KLB, Kiko devoted himself to producing other artists and his Orlando-based tour company. Leandro devoted himself to politics and individual musical projects. Bruno, in addition to devoting himself to electronic music, has had a successful path as a professional MMA fighter.

“Everyone had the opportunity to do different things, things we never had to do with the rhythm that KLB has always been,” Kiko explains.

In addition to performing at Vibra São Paulo, which has already been sold out, the band is touring in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, São José (SC), Curitiba, Ribeirao Preto, Brasilia, Natal, Recife, Salvador, Maceio, Manaus and Belem.

How do we get back into this routine with rehearsals, recordings, performances, and commitments between brothers? Did you feel this partnership?
Kiko: We have always been very united, because we were young, not just because we are brothers, but because we grew up in this musical environment. We are always together. Our single friends were always brought into the family and became friends with my brothers. This has not changed. The interruption in his career obviously changed our meeting places, which were also previously professional. We were together practically every day, whether at a barbecue, to dine together, or to see nephews…the cohabitation was as intense as it was. It was always so delicious. I have great friends, whom I know as Leandro or Bruno’s friends, and even my parents. It did not detract from our coexistence.
Bruno: We miss this routine of shows and trips, but when we took a break, we knew what we wanted and what each of us wanted to do. It was very peaceful.

In this period outside the stage, have you discovered new emotions?
Leandro: We continued to produce several musical productions. I was also an MP in 2010 and from 2014 to 2015.
Kiko: Incidentally Vice Incredible. He did so much for those in need. If only there were more Leandros in public office.
Bruno: I am a dreamer person, I always love to do what I want, and I am ready for professional martial arts fights. I’ve been practicing martial arts since I was young and always trained with the UFC pros. I did not fall off the parachute and was very happy. I had no defeats. Now I just take it as a lifestyle, to be healthy, to keep my head straight. I have an electronic music project. I always kept in music production, and participated in many festivals. It is a project that I will be working on in parallel.
Kiko: I have always divided my life between Brazil and Orlando in the United States. me and Francine (Pantaleão), my wife, we launched Meu Destino Número 1, a giant tour operator as a TV show, 24 Radio Orlando only with songs from parks, two agencies, podcast, app, website, blogs…what one needs for the perfect Orlando trip. We magically bring up what my siblings and I have experienced since childhood. She also continued to produce and write for other artists.

I was very young when KLB broke out. How did it feel to live a “normal” young life in the spotlight?
Leandro: We have always lived in this musical environment thanks to my father who worked with great artists. So, we already knew what to expect. In addition, we had an institution in the family, which did not allow us to go crazy too much. There was a denial of not going to clubs, among other things, but our joy was on the stage. Today we can live on music because of that.
Kiko: It was a privilege to have the opportunities that were presented to us, a specific profession, to be recognized for our talent and to have the financial resources. The people are very grateful. Of course some things were more limited. I wanted to go to the club, but I couldn’t… I was at that point where the kids were very active, and I was discovering a lot… But if you think about it, it was our life to celebrate. We enjoyed singing and making fun, and on top of that, we paid for it.
Bruno: I started at 15. I must have stopped doing some things, like staying home (laughs). I have a family that really cares. My mother always traveled with us, and my father also always guided us. I don’t see that I lost my adolescence because I had the privilege of so few people to live in this environment, to learn about the whole country, and to see recognition for my work. If I had to go back to this life a million times, I would.
