Banda Uó was a Brazilian tecnobrega band composed of Davi Sabbag, Mateus Carrilho, and Candy Mel. The band was formed in 2010 in the Goiânia. The group was initially composed of Davi Sabbag, Mateus Carrilho and Flora Maria. They released their first music video, a tecnobrega cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream", called "Não Quero Saber", with help from students of Universidade Federal de Goiás and PUC Goiás.

The funny lyrics and Sabbag's direction got the attention of DJ Diplo, who was responsible for introducing funk carioca to the world. Besides this, Flora Maria left the group and Mel Gonçalves, also known as Candy Mel, joined the group, the three started to work in others versions, releasing the extended play "Me Emoldurei de Presente Pra Te Ter".

They released another cover–this time of Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair", called "Shake de Amor". The music video won the 2011 MTV Brazil Music Video Awards, bringing the group to nationwide prominence.

In 2012, Banda Uó released their debut album Motel through Deckdisc. They received good reviews from Rolling Stone Brasil: "One of the triumphs of Banda Uó was to realize that being humorous is not necessarily related to "funny" music - and that the trio secured an audience even wider."
