Formado no Conservatório Pernambucano de Música, por idéia do flautista Sérgio Campelo, diretor artístico e arranjador do grupo, o Sa Grama tem influência do Movimento Armorial (Sérgio Campello foi do Quarteto Romançal), ou seja, o grupo faz uma releitura da música popular com roupagem erudita. Lançou o primeiro disco em 1998, pelo selo LG Projetos e Produções Artísticas. Com este disco foi finalista do Prêmio Sharp daquele ano e ganhou o Prêmio Aeso de Cultura Pernambucana. Ainda em 1998, fez a trilha sonora da mini-série O Auto da Compadecida, de Ariano Suassuna (exibida 1999). No ano seguinte, lançou Engenho, o segundo disco, e, em 2002, Tábua de Pirulito. O Sa Grama é formado por Sérgio campello, Gilberto Campello, Jônatas Zacarias, Antônio Barreto, Frederica Burgeois, Cláudio Moura, Fábio Delicato, Neide Alves e Thiago Fournier.
Sa Grama formed in 1995 in the classrooms of the Pernambuco Conservatory of Music, the brainchild of professor and flautist Sérgio Campelo, who has been responsible for the group's arrangements and artistic direction ever since.
Sa Grama's first CD was released in August 1998, as part of a project by LG Artistic Projects and Productions and with the help of a municipal law in Recife (state capital of Pernambuco) aimed at encouraging culture.
Following the release of their first CD, the group never looked back. In November 1998, they won first prize in the music category of the Prêmio Aeso da Cultura Pernambucana and reached the final of the Prêmio Sharp 1998.
In Recife, in December 1998, the group recorded the original soundtrack for the mini-series O Auto da Compadecida, which was based on the work of Ariano Suassuna and shown on Rede Globo TV in January 1999. It was adapted for television by Guel Arraes, Adriana Falcão and João Falcão. The soundtrack featured songs especially composed for scenes by Sérgio Campelo. In addition to original music composed for the mini-series, ten songs from the first CD were adapted for the soundtrack.
The beginning of 1999 saw Sa Grama sign a deal with Kuarup, a distribution company from Rio de Janeiro, which distributed the group's music all over Brazil, including the second CD, "Engenho", released in December 1999. This was once again an LG Artistic Projects and Productions release, with the help of Recife's Municipal Department of Culture.
Despite having released only two CDs in Brazil, Sa Grama have been busy winning over new audiences. In the 1999 Pan-American Games held in Winnipeg, Canada, the Brazil synchronised swimming team performed its routine to Sa Grama's music.
During this time, the group has played theatres, cultural organisations, universities, libraries, schools and its music can be heard in the soundtracks of theatre plays, dance performances, commercial videos, short films, educational CD Roms, among others.
