I’ve been asked before, why I’m not featuring some musicians from my country. So, today I present to you Bruno Morais, who is just about to release his second album A Vontade Superstar. The São Paulo based singer, songwriter and producer has put together this little mixtape for journalist Ronaldo Evangelista,. His selection mixes pop and folk, jazz and funk, violins and organs, harpsichords and banjos, Frank Sinatra and Maria Bethania, Nina Simone and Roberto Carlos. And whatever else influenced him on his musical journey.
