Joyce - Passarinho Urbano LP


Label: Week-End

Release Date: April 26th, 2024

In 1975, Joyce Moreno, who had just wrapped up a tour with legendary Brazilian composer Vinicius de Moraes, found herself in a studio with producer Sergio Bardotti in Rome, Italy.

She had been taking a break from writing and she decided to pick up a selection of her favorite compositions from contemporary Brazilian writers whose songs were beacons of hope in times of an ongoing intense military leadership in her home country. Unlike their previous albums, these recordings live from their reductiveness and intimacy.

For a long time, Passarinho Urbano was considered a secret masterpiece and was highly sought after by record collectors, now Week-End Records is glad to be making it available internationally on vinyl for the first time ever.
