Lyrics, guitar chords and video
of "Rosto de menina, rosto de mulher"
(Girl face, woman face)

In short, "Rosto de menina, rosto de mulher" try to be a mirror of some moments
of our contemporary times (like a photo shot) associated with love, that maybe thousands of people
experience today that love through internet. Anecdotally I tell you that once, a girl wrote me thanking me
for having composed this song ... told me that her boyfriend had declared his
love by sending to her "Rosto menina, rosto of mulher". Personally, I think that
events like this are the best award that a composer can receive.
