The record was recorded in the country where grapiúna lives and is signed by music producer Grant Henderson. But the Sulbaian seasoning goes further.
After all, the Itabunan musicians Naldino do Acordeon, Sol Reis and Alba Cristina participate. A special detail, which shows how much Kron has broadened horizons, is the five songs to the guitar. Also remarkable is the presence of his younger children, singing capoeira with an English accent.
Cláudio Kron intends to announce the new CD in Portuguese-speaking countries (including Brazil, Angola, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe). "But today, with the Internet, people from all over the world can have access to our work," he recalls.
Through the world with music
