    Proceeds from cassette sales go to the ANF (Agência de Notícias das Favelas). ANF is an independent news vehicle that was turned into an NGO that produces newspapers, events and other cultural products made exclusively by people that live in favelas. The people who live there rely mainly on their weekly newspaper A Voz da Favela (the Voice of the Favela), which is sold on the streets by an open price (you can pay what you want). P&P feel it's an important organization because the biggest corporation Brazilian News Agency are very conservative and with ideals based on many kinds of racial and social discrimination. It's very difficult for an independent newspaper to reach as many people as 'A Voz da Favela' does, and ANF helps spread the word about what happens in these places from the perspective of those who live there.The newspaper itself is sold mainly in Rio de Janeiro, but the online version has collaborators from other favelas from other states. And now, with the pandemic, they can't sell their newspaper on the streets anymore and are in dire need of donations.

Maus Lençóis (Bad Sheets) (refrão) E chega sexta a noite Eu só quero me enforcar Nas vozes das pessoas Que eu ouço bebendo no bar E chega sexta a noite Eu só quero me iludir No beijo de uma moça Que eu ainda nem conheci Desta noite eu não passo Acho que eu vou desmaiar Como é que eu cheguei nessa praça? Ouço o barulho do mar Nunca mais bebo cachaça Dá até pra acreditar Se hoje fosse terça Eu não ia me afogar (refrão) Vagabundo não tem férias Meu patrão me alertou Não nasci pra boemia Nem nasci pra ser doutor Respeita minha agonia Que eu respeito a tua dor E moço, favor traz outra Que esta aqui já congelou (ruídos e falas de gringo) ENGLISH: (chorus) So its Friday night And I just want to hang myself With the voices of the people I hear drinking at the bar So it’s Friday night And I just want some illusions On the kiss of a woman That I didn’t even met I won’t survive tonight I think I’m going to faint How did I get on this park? I hear the sound of the sea I’ll never drink again Can you believe that? If today was Tuesday I wouldn’t drown (chorus) A tramp ain’t got no holydays My boss said so I wasn’t born to be a drunkyard I wasn’t born to be doctor Rescpect my agony And I’ll respect your pain And, man, bring me another This one’s already frost (city noise and gringo talk)

Três Anos 02:26
Três anos (Three Years) entre os três anos em que terminamos nunca soube dizer o teu passado, inacabado, não posso ousar em escrever Tantas rachaduras na tela e a tua janela com frutas Ao amanhecer Nunca soube dizer o que realmente pensava em a cortina tombou deixando olhares nus sem muralhas com frestas drenando ou retirando o pus do coração que me resta não tinha o que te dizer entre os três anos que se passaram os meus traços mudaram as cores forraram esse oceano do ser o teu cheiro mudou teu andar se tornou medíocre coreografia Nunca soube dizer o por que do ranger dos motores em vias são apenas três anos entre sentimentos que misturam as linhas nunca soube dizer o quanto importou pra você cada um desses dias ENGLISH: Within the three years that we broke up I could never tell your past, unfinished, to write it I would never dare all those fractures on the screen and your window filled with fruit I could never tell what you really thought in all those mornings the curtains fell leaving naked stares without walls or cracks removing draining pus from the heart I have left I had nothing to tell you within the three years that passed my traits changed colors filled this ocean of being your smell changed your walk became mediocre choreography I could never tell the reason for the creaking of engines on tracks Its been only three years between feelings that mix up lines but I could never tell how much each of these days mattered to you as well Its been only three years between feelings that mix up lines but I could never tell how much each of these days mattered to you

Seis Badaladas (Six Chimes) (latidos) Quantas armas afiadas você vê agora (instrumental) As coisas vão de ruim pra horrível muito rápido do nada você ta fudido, você tá na merda você tá em um lugar péssimo muito mais rapidamente do que você consegue perceber acontecendo (instrumental) A gente só quer conversar- -funciona melhor quando o oponente não é experiente com armas afiadas quando a ação move devagar quando você não se sente imediatamente ameaçado e quando você tem suporte o suficiente incluindo um oficial com arma pronta Abaixa esse vidro Se manda! (instrumental) ENGLISH: (barks) How many edged weapons do you see now (instrumental) Things go from bad to horrible real quick right away you are in deep shit you’re in bad shape you’re in a bad place faster than you perceive it happening to you (instrumental) All we wanna do is talk- -works best when the attacker is not experienced with edged weapons when the action is moving slowly when you are not eminently threatened and when you have enough back up with at least one cover office with gun ready Put the glass down Get out of here (instrumental)

about

October 9, 2020: Pedroso & Pedrosa are Rafael de Toledo Pedroso (they/them, he/him) and Pedro Pedrosa (he/him) and are from Paraná and Rio de Janeiro. Procuram Quati (Searching Coati in its literal translation) is the first album from the duo Pedroso & Pedrosa, a genre-defying work that fuses elements of popular Brazilian music with avant-garde electronic experimentation. The album follows a loose narrative from night to day as the duo search for the local animal known as the Coati.  Procuram Quati combines a blending of rhythms and lyrics in their own unique way while painting a colorful and mournful landscape filled with tales of blind optimism and futuristic Brazilian atmospheres.

And the journey ends here. Pedroso & Pedrosa (weird Brazilian duo) finally grabbed the Quati (Coati) by its tail and then—

They released their first album. Welcome to Procuram Quati (Searching Coati, literal translation);

Procuram Quati has different rhythms, genres and it never stays put, always looking out for the Quati. The duo goes on a colorful and mournful journey singing tales about blind optimism while fusing experimental electronic music with popular Brazilian sounds. An authentic instrumentation takes care of the atmosphere filled with synthesizers, ukuleles, bongos, congas, recorders, turntables and more.

The album follows a very loose narrative from night to day, searching the Quati everywhere they could. The duo focused on different methods for each song resulting in them sounding unique and diverse. Each track ends up being its own universe.

Pedroso & Pedrosa are Pedro Pedrosa and Rafael de Toledo Pedroso, two Brazilian friends that met in 2007. They reconnected in 2020 and formed the Pedroso & Pedrosa duo and also started a radio show that is currently broadcasted by Radio On Berlin. In addition, they started producing this album, as well as other music, and are currently still searching for the Coati. I mean Quati. Have you seen it?''
