Forças D'Alma, (Soul forces) was born,
grow up and sailed in my imagination
for quite some time. It is the free approach
to music that I always dreamed off.

Having received the right invitation, I asked
to the right person to write the song that
would carry the name of the CD. And the
soul forces took me to the right persons
who along with me created every single bar
of these recordings. It couldn't be different.

And these same soul forces took us to the
mysterious scenarios of the old Bahia, where
new soul forces made us united, not only by
the music, but also by the soul forces that
report us to the Creator. I have no doubt
whatsoever about it.
