The first time they performed together was in Brazil, in 1972, when, on their debut album, Simone recorded Ivan Lins’ “Arrived a Hora”.
“From what I know” and “Bold” are other themes, “among many other classics by Ivan Lins”, which will be interpreted in this show, according to the same source.
Simone began singing in the 1970s, after becoming a basketball player, having been part of the Brazilian national team.
