Claudia presents in an unpublished duet with the singer, a theme that Tozé Brito purposely composed for the singer. Author and composer of “Café dos Teus Olhos”, Tozé Brito was also part of the whole production of “Reflexo”.
Tozé Brito about Claudia Picado:
«About 5 years ago Claudia came to me and said she would very much like to have a theme of mine for her new album. I immediately accepted. The empathy and friendship between us was growing and I was always following all the work. When I feel affinity and I like people a lot it makes the work a lot easier, and that’s how this love story came about and later the idea of recording this duet. The Coffee of Your Eyes is a special song for a special person. It was composed taking into account Claudia’s taste and the whole concept of the album. I hope you all know and sing with us. »
