Egotrip was a successful but short-lived Brazilian pop/rock band.


Bassist Arthur Maia — who had previously worked with MPB veterans such as Gal Costa, Caetano Veloso, Roberto Carlos, Djavan, and Milton Nascimento [1] — founded Egotrip in 1985. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1987. The song "Viagem ao Fundo do Ego" became a huge hit shortly after, when it was included in the soundtrack of Rede Globo's telenovela Mandala.

Egotrip would not last long, however: they disbanded after drummer Pedro Gil (Gilberto Gil's son) died in a car crash in 1990.[2]
