Vasconcelos Sentimento announces debut album "Furto"

Release date: 30th July 2021 | Formats: Vinyl LP/CD/Digital Residing in Rio de Janeiro, Vasconcelos Sentimento is a self-taught composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist.

Throughout a varied career, which included a four year stint as bandleader of Jorge Ben’s...
