The band was formed in 1993 in Portugal by three friends who wanted to explore different musical approaches - José Nave and Pedro Temporão are the original members. This trio played instrumental music for some time, trying to define some musical orientation, wich however would be based on electronics. Soon Cristina Martins joined the band and "CELLO" was formed.
The first demo quickly raised the interest of a portuguese independent label, Symbiose, who signed the band for a three records deal. In the same year the first album, "Alva" (1993) , was released. Critics didn't hesitate to point to CELLO a place in the portuguese music scene, as a "promissing band", although still looking for a more personalised sound.
