clássico, uma obra de arte única


Álbum obrigatório para conhecer da nossa música.


Arthur Verocai is a master at what he does. His heartfelt vocals combined with his sense for arranging/orchestration is impeccable. It’s warm, groovy, and gentle. The songs are short, Arthur gives you just enough music to hook you and leave you wanting more. Deserves so much more recognition.
