This CD is a research about the “brasilian songs with italian lyrics”, well-known songs in Italy during the ‘70s but nowadays almost forgotten. Songs by artists like Chico Buarque, Toquinho, Vinicius de Moraes, Baden Powell, Tom Jobim which found their way to reach our people’s hearts by the work of Sergio Bardotti, Giorgio Calabrese and other Italian poets. It is dedicated to the memory of Sergio Bardotti. It was recorded first in Natal, Brasil, by Eduardo Taufic and then in Venice, Italy, by Renato Greco

Cover Art

Our CD cover project takes inspiration from the Elenco LPs of the 60's. Here you can see 1963 Vinicius de Moraes and Odette Lara's famous cover, one of our favourites. We created "Samba & Amore" cover trying to respect our idea and the colours, the fonts and the bullets of the Elenco's covers.
