After a three-year break (“Vidas pra Contar” was released in 2015), Djavan’s new album has been released on all digital platforms. “Vesúvio” gathers 12 original songs and a bonus track: a Spanish version recorded with singer and song writer from Uruguay Jorge Drexler.
To achieve the sonority desired, Djavan introduces a new band composed of old mates such as the guitar player Torcuato Mariano, the pianist Paulo Calasans, keyboard player Renato Fonseca, and two new musicians, bass player, Arthur de Palla, and drummer Felipe Alves, a new flavor that gives a much more pop-like swing to his new “crop” of songs.

“With 12 original songs – and a much more pop-like rhythm –, Vesúvio talks about love, nature, but it also brings more political songs written by Djavan himself under the impact of a much-polarized scenario in Brazil for the last few months, such as Solitude and Viver é Dever.”
