When the singer Zezé Motta recorded “Sra. Liberdade”, André Midani, president of Warner Bros, recorder of which she was hired, came to the conclusion that the samba fit her voice.

By irony of fate, when he presented himself in Hannover, in Germany, at the opening of the Industrial Fair, at the Manesman, they were asked to include more sambas in the repertoire. . Guilherme Araújo, his manager at the time, agreed in 24 hours on another show ready with many sambas. The success was so great that she was then invited by Itamaraty to make a closing presentation of an event, in the stand of Brazil.
In 2006, he returned to the subject and talk to his current manager, Marcus Montenegro, who soon embraced the idea and took to Christiano Moreno, composer and producer, and in a climate of great excitement, they set up a feijoada In theatre Rival, for 200 composers with the intention of gathering musical geniuses.
They were present Sergio Procópio, Nelson Sargento, Darci Maravilha, Serginho Meriti, Marquinhos PQD and so many other samba geniuses. Those who could not attend sent their compositions later, Arlindo Cruz, Lourenço, Zé Renato, etc. 200 songs were recorded during the event. Today, a decade later, the dream came true, under the regency of the Master Celso Santana, production Karina Alaor, Co production of Christiano Moreno and realization Coqueiro Verde and Montenegro and Raman.
