y on percussion, Guest appearances by harmonica virtuoso Hendrik Meurkens and acclaimed guitarist Romero Lubambo bring their own magic to the project.

PROJECT IVAN LINSIvanLg

This project also features special guests such as Romero Lubambo, Jay Ashby and Ivan Lins, himself, who sings 2 duets with Kenia, on “Closer to me” (Mudanca dos Ventos) and “Even you and I” (Lembra). Although this is perhaps Kenia’s most Brazilian project to date, she never seems to lose that “certain something” that has always made her music transcend geographic and musical boundaries.
