We should thank the Loronix friend Stefan from Germany. He was responsible for calling my attention to this album, recorded in Germany, Hamburg. Caterina Valente is the lady that introduces Luiz Bonfa on last video. She was born in France and then moved to Germany where she started his professional career in 1953. Caterina Valente sings in six languages, including Portuguese, which is the language he sings on this marvelous album.
This is Caterina Valente & Luiz Bonfa – Caterina Valente & Luiz Bonfa (1963), for Decca Germany. This album was recorded in two days, January 23rd and 25th, featuring all compositions by Luiz Bonfa. Selected tracks were issued on several formats by Decca, including 45RPM, singles and EPs. The cover artworks of these editions are really worth to be seen, you can check all them together at Luiz Bonfa discography by Yasouka, here. Tracks include:

Before starting Loronix, I never realize how great is German passion for the music from Brazil. The evidences are clear, Baden Powell has a great popularity in German, helping on leveraging the interest for Brazilian music as a whole. Brazil-on-Guitar is another fantastic demonstration of dedication Germans have for Brazilian music. I could make several new friends Loronix friends on Germany, something that could only be accomplished with Loronix.
Loronixers from Germany, our country number 3, came last year from 136 different cities. Berlin takes the lead with 16% of visits, followed by Frankfurt 9% and Cologne with 7%, showing a low concentration on major cities. Germany is tuned as a whole at Loronix. It was also really difficult to select Germany picture and I took a decision based on a calm landscape showing mountains. Thanks a lot for the last year, Loronixers from Germany. You got the podium, third position.
