“His record packs the kind of acerbic, off-kilter Tom Z’e-Elza Soares buzz that delivers samba and its children from suave” – Robert Christgau, Noisey

Gearbox Records presents his latest album “Mente”, co-produced by no wave icon Arto Lindsay, and representative, via its diverse list of accredited musicians, of the progressive, new-generational music scene that is bubbling away in Rio.
