Artists pay tribute to composer/producer Suba on this disc from Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees Records . Suba was born in Serbia, but relocated to Sao Paulo in the 1980s. His magic touch in the studio brought the bossa nova into the new millennium with Bebel Gilberto's critically acclaimed Tanto Tempo. In 1999, Suba died tragically in a studio fire at the age of 37. The new disc features new tracks, remixes, live recordings and "posthumous collaborations".
