Cólera is a Brazilian punk rock band formed in October 1979 in São Paulo, by the brothers Redson (guitar and lead vocals) and Pierre (drums) and their friend Val (bass guitar) [1]. They are currently the most important punk rock band in Brazil and also one of the oldest punk bands in activity in Brazil, with a career that spans almost 30 years. Although they have never achieved any mainstream success, Cólera is also one of the most influential acts in the Brazilian punk scene, with many fans inside and outside their country. Their sound is fast, sometimes melodic, and the lyrics aim to subjects like peace, liberty, animal liberation,love, politics and environmentalism. They have toured Europe three times, in 1987, 2004 and 2008.

On September 28th, 2011, Redson died from stomach bleeding at 49 years-old.

Cólera continues to play with a new formation: Wendel Barros on vocals and Cacá Saffiotti on guitar.
