A native of Pernanbuco, Brasil, Duda Lucena is an excellent guitar player and a singer with a warm tone in the tradition of brasil greatest singers. At time his voice has similarities to Gilberto Gil, especially in the Joao Donato and Gilberto Gil song "Lugar Comum".
The album, recorded live with an excellent group of musicians from Charleston, NC, include songs from some of the best singer/songwriters of Brasil. Djavan's "Sina", Gilberto Gil "Drao", two beautiful songs by Caetano Veloso "Trlhos Urbanos" and "Odara". And a wonderful, delicate version of Jobim's Classic "Corcovado". There is also an original song by Duda, the slow samba reggae "Sol".
