Nowadays, Iara has been on her solo tour, Macunaopera, releasing the álbum “Macunaó peraí matupi”, which is a musicalization from parts of Macunaíma - O herói sem nenhum caráter”, by Mario de Andrade. This project started in 1999, during Iara´s Languages Course at USP (University of São Paulo) when Iara identified the latent musicality of the book. The songs are parts mostly already shown in verses. Three songs have been recorded before and are now part of this album with new musical arrangements “Valei-me” and “Mandu Sarará”, from the record “Cartografia Musical Brasileira / São Paulo – Rumos Musicais 2001” (the Itaú Cultural collection), and “Macunaíma”, from the record “ Composição” from DonaZica band (2003).

The first copies of the album, sponsored by Petrobrás, will be distributed among public education departments, culture foundations and in teachers’ graduating centers all over Brazil, as a complementary study of the works of “Macunaíma – the hero without a character”, a book that is often asked for at the “vestibular” (pre university exams).. It was selected by Programa Cultural da Petrobras and released nationally and commercially by Selo Sesc on agust, 2008.

The band has two released records: “Composição”, from 2003 and “Filme Brasileiro”, 2005. Both have been very well criticized by the specialists.
