this album is the product of five years of work. it’s face has changed many times in it’s evolution and i have grown with it, sometimes joyfully and sometimes in struggle.
i hope it will bring others joy and inspiration, and communicate to them some of my passion, which i’ve been told is my defining characteristic, and which i, in turn, find to be the quintessence of being “Brazilliant.”

i dedicate this work --it’s beginnings, coalescence, and final product-- to my great-grandmother, Alice Bautisa. i feel her blood and the strength of the earth flowing in my veins as she lives on the land in the distant place my spirit calls home.
