This footage was shot on a tour following CYRO BAPTISTA'S VILLA-LOBOS/VIRA-LOUCOS project!

This adventure is in fact Cyro's oldest and first project: it is based on his debut solo CD , recorded in 1997, where he interprets the music of Brazil's greatest classical composer Heitor Villa-Lobos. Cyro's unique arrangements and unprecedented take on Villa's music, led to the play of words Villa-Lobos/Vira Loucos - meaning "Villa-Lobos Turned Crazy". In the original CD notes, Cyro asks forgiveness to the composer: "As for Villa, if he turns over in his grave and throws up dust, I'm sorry. He is a dead genius. I am a live idiot"
