Bio

A native of Rio de Janeiro, singer Veronica Nunes, daughter of a classical pianist, grew up in a musical environment listening to traditional Brazilian styles such as samba, choro and classical music. Since the age of fifteen Veronica sings and performs professionally.

Ricardo Vogt, guitarist and composer, born in Santa Cruz do Sul, RS, graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007 and has since recorded, and toured with Milton Nascimento, Eliane Elias and Esperanza Spalding.

The CD, 'Pra Fugir da Saudade' is a collaboration bewteen the duo and a journey through generations of great composers of Samba giving a real tribute to the most traditional and timeless rhythm of Brazil. The album features fresh and original interpretations of classical compositions by masters such as Chico Buarque, Milton Nascimento, Paulinho da Viola, Nelson Sargento, Baden Powell, Vinicius de Morais, among others. 'Pra Fugir da Saudade' was released in May 2013, features special guests as Arthur Maia (ukulele bass), Rafael Barata (drums) and Alan Ferber (trombone).

The guitar used by Ricardo was developed by Godin Guitars exclusively for the project. The guitar, which bears the name of the guitarist, has a different tuning from the classical guitar and contains a string that sounds like a bass, resulting in a very characteristic and original sound.
