Press and media “InventaRio incontra Ivan Lins”
Nominee for the 2014 15th Annual Latin Grammy Awards, category Best MPB Album
Ivan Lins talks about the CD project
Since I like to make my work available to new and different concepts, when I received the invitation (from group InventaRio) for this project, I accepted right away. The musicians are excellent, and restless just like me. We met in Italy and together we designed the music’s sound and interpretation, but leaving their very interesting creativity prevail. It was a nice opportunity for me to hear my music sound in a new way.
All (members of group InventaRio) are excellent musicians, and admirers of my work. Recording with this group was simple and surprising. I soon realized that they are very creative, which brought a new sound to the songs.
