The synergy of Villela's haunting voice and Peixoto's brilliant guitar work has been transporting spellbound audiences in all their evocative performances since 1995. Their astonishing improvisation-laced concerts, whether in a duo context or in larger ensembles, have won them a huge, dedicated following as they transcend traditional musical boundaries. Inspired by the vast musical soul of Brazil, their compositions freely intermingle indigenous African and European references with the sensibility of jazz in an expressive approach that's at once nostalgic and modern.
