Thais Gulin and Chico Buarque
A recent addition to Chico Buarque’s hefty catalogue of songs is “Essa Pequena,” present in his latest album Chico\. His inspiration for the romantic blues song is Thais Gulin, a young Brazilian singer who has just released her second album ôÔÔôôÔôÔ.
Thais is under the spotlight because she´s his girlfriend, but there’s no denying her talent. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro, where she´s living nowadays, the album ôÔÔôôÔôÔ mixes samba and bossa nova with compositions by Tom Zé, Chico Buarque and Zeca Baleiro. Both the album and shows are a critical aand public success.
Selvagens à Procura de Lei
Fortaleza, the capital of Ceará is finally embracing rock and roll. Indie rock band Selvagens à Procura de Lei is changing the musical scene of the north-eastern city that was better known for forró and country music.
Formed by four 20-year olds, they host a regular party in the city’s cultural calendar. Every first Friday of the month they play at Orbita Bar, one of the must-go places in Fortaleza. They released their first album “Aprendendo a Mentir” in September and two songs are already playing in the local radios.
