Coming up in the warm streets and long nights of Curitiba, music was his escape, then it was his passion, and now it is his whole life.
The future is as bright as the past for the man born Henrique Oliveira a.k.a. HNQO.
It promises music that once again shows a marked evolution in his sound and proves he is never one to do the same trick twice.
That said, it is music that still bares the hallmarks of the HNQO sound that people around the world have come to love: a real sense of soul, funk and fun as well as displaying some assured studio skills for the way he manipulates his bass and layers up magical melody. It is a brave approach, but one that has already paid off for this global talent.
