Opa was the brainchild of Hugo Fatturoso, the Uruguayan musical genius who was behind the South American beat group Los Shakers. After time exploring the rhythms of rock he returned to his first love, jazz and formed Opa in 1969 with his brother Jorge and Ringo Thielman on drums. Moving to New York in 1970 they became Airto Morreira and Flora Purims backing band, appearing on several of their early-to- mid 70s albums.
OPA signed to Milestone in 1976 and recorded two albums produced by Airto Morreira, the first of which is the classic "Goldenwings". A sensitive mixture of jazz and South American rhythms the stand-outs are the jazz dance African Bird and Groove.
