From time to time, I hear some people say, “I’d like to invite you, but you must charge a very high price for your work”, or others say, “your schedule must be busy”, and still others say “I didn’t know you were working!”
Against all distortions, all misunderstandings, I want to say I feel encouraged to move ahead in the call of sowing beauty through music that invites to reflection and all that goes beyond shallowness.

THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT – Poetry walks…
Over the last ten years I’ve been sowing, trying to focus exclusively on the quality of the music I make in all aspects – from composition to finalized products available in the “market”, in search of turning them accessible to all. I’ve valued partnerships and acknowledged friendships, incentives and efforts from people with whom I’ve walked all these years. I’ve encouraged younger people, telling them there’s a (good) way to be followed. Over the last months, I’ve applied to bids in all levels. And I keep on fighting. This is my vocation.
Today, on my birthday, I’ve been given a present that touches me and makes me really celebrate: the Cd I’ve just launched in partnership with Gladir Cabral, produced by Fernando Merlino and with executive production of Ana Paula Spolon has been pre-nominated for the 24th MPB award, promoted by Ministry of Culture and company Vale do Rio Doce.
In my opinion, to be on this list is making history. And I really don’t care whether I’m going to win it or not. To be pre-nominated is the recognition of a work I did with all my heart, it is to be able to say how much I admire and thank Gladir for building this dream with him. It is to be able to say to Fernando Merlino how much his participation has made a difference in this work. But above all, it is to be able to look backwards and see that 30 years of music have not been in vain, and express my gratitude to EVERYONE who has walked with me during these decades.
My joy is really great. Let’s move on, always together.
