Kiko Dinucci is a Brazilian musician and composer from Guarulhos, São Paulo. Founding member of Metá Metá and Passo Torto. He collaborated with artists such as Elza Soares, Tom Zé, Criolo, Jards Macalé, and Baco Exu do Blues. «I've wanted to do an album dedicated to the guitar for a long time». RASTILHO truly is a guitar record, where the instrument overlaps everything else, the voices, the lyrics. It is the wood that sings, exploring folk music textures with a chunky percussive vivid playing style. The album has been recorded and mixed analog, this special atmosphere recalls the masterpieces from the 60s and 70s onwards. Kiko carries those influences from legends of the Brazilian song and acoustic guitar such as Dorival Caymmi, Baden Powell, João Bosco, or Gilberto Gil.

Sambas do Absurdo
Juçara Marçal - vocals
Rodrigo Campos - vocals, guitar and cavaquinho
Gui Amabis - vocals and sampler

Inspired by Albert Camus' "The Myth of Sisyphus" (1942), Sambas do Absurdo freely talk about the encounter with absurd, described in the book as the divorce of the individual with existence.
According to Camus, the only philosophical question that matters is suicide, and when we find the absurd, which would be, in short, the meaninglessness of life, we have two options: either we commit suicide or learn to live an absurd life. Sambas de Absurdo is the partnership of Rodrigo Campos (music), Nuno Ramos (lyrics) and the voice of Juçara Marçal.
The aesthetic proposal has at its core the breaking down of some foundations of samba as a genre. This aesthetic treatment offers an obscure, dissolved, dizzying samba blended with state-of-the-art sampling techniques. Juçara sings, Rodrigo plays guitar and chip and Gui arranges, asserting his resources as a producer and his peculiar way of sampling. In the show, the trio presents, besides the eight sambas published in the album, other compositions in the same vein.
Gui Amabis is a singer, songwriter and music producer. He has released three critically acclaimed albums ("Ruivo Em Sangue", "Trabalhos Carnivoros", "Memórias Luso-Africanas") and is the author of themes and songs for movie tracks and hit series, such as "Bruna Surfistinha" (dir. Marcus Baldini), "City of Men" (Rede Globo) and "Psi" (HBO). The singer also signs songs that have entered the repertoire of artists such as Otto and Lucas Santtana, as well as the production of "Caravana Sereia Bloom" and "Vagarosa" by Céu, and "São Mateus Não é Um Lugar Assim Tão Longe" by Rodrigo Campos, among other titles.
Rodrigo Campos is a singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist, author of the albums "São Mateus Não é Um Lugar Assim Tão Longe", "Bahia Fantástica" and "Conversas com Toshiro", internationally well received. Alongside Romulo Fróes, Kiko Dinucci and Marcelo Cabral he is part of the band Passo Torto, "Best Group" at the Brazilian Music Award (which also honored Campos in the "Revelation" category). Besides these works, the artist signed collaborations with big names of MPB, such as Elza Soares, Tom Zé and Criolo.
