A pear gets dumped by a cashew; an unemployed phone book gets an important job at Messias’s second-hand bookshop; even the pearl earring of the girl depicted in Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s masterpiece comes to life in the apologues of Matéria Estelar (Star Stuff), singer Rhaissa Bittar’s new album.

These are small stories of our day-to-days that come to life in the amazing chronicles of Rhaissa Bittar’s first album, Voilà.
