The forró of Hermeto Paschoal

Musician will release a CD dedicated to the northeastern genre

Marco Antonio Barbosa
Hermeto Paschoal is preparing a forró CD that should be released by the end of the year. The "wizard" of a thousand instruments has been recording the album with producer Raimundo Campos, but it’s been delayed due to both musicians’ health problems. Some of the songs’ lyrics will be written by Hermeto himself - which doesn’t happen very often - and others, by Alceu Valença, who will also participate in the recordings.
