Colloquial Quintet


The Colloquial Quintet was born from our desire to know Brazil, this place we live in and that inhabits us. Music was the mother tongue with which we launched new paths and unknown houses. It has led us to people with diverse ways of thinking, creating, praying, fighting for Life and celebrating. Encounters that teach and excite us.This cd is a letter that we wrote during this crossing, our way of sharing these feelings.
"Surely you know: we want to swim a river and pass; but it's going to hit the other band is at a much lower point, quite different from what was first thought. Is not living too dangerous? "Asks Guimarães Rosa.


It has been.

And great.
