When Marcos Valle & Stacey Kent first met at a gig in Rio, it turned out to be a meeting of musical minds, samba soul, and complementary voices. Their 2011 brief encounter revealed a long-term appreciation of each other?s work, a shared love of nature, and a creative mutual understanding that has been binding ever since. Leading to conversations on email, then by log fires from the Rocky Mountains to Pao de A??car, and resulting in concert tours plus the formidable album ?Ao Vivo? – a collection of Marcos Valle?s major songs, recorded live at Rio?s Miranda in 2012. Lovingly recrafted by producer Jim Tomlinson, carving out a perfect niche for their divine vocals to harmonise, you’ll find ?Ao Vivo? on Sony music, and Marcos, Stacey & Jim on this A World In London by clicking here: You’ll also find Marcos Valle touring worldwide as he celebrates half a century as a music-maker, and Stacey Kent & Jim Tomlinson on stage in London at Ronnie Scott’s Sept 7th till 11th!
