The singer and songwriter Pedro Luis presents songs from his debut solo album, “Tempo de Menino” on October 21st at the 6th Brazil Film Fest in Toronto, Canada.

The repertoire of the concert features songs written by Pedro Luís with various partners: “Nas Estrelas” (with Sergio Paes), “Crise” (with Ivan Santos), “A Medida do Meu Coração” (Ricardo Silveira), and “Tá?” (with Roberta Sá and Carlos Rennó). In the title track “Tempo de Menino,” the artist honors the neighborhood of Tijuca, in Rio de Janeiro, where he was born and raised. The song “Menina do Salão de Beleza” (written with Beto and Rodrigo Valente Cabelo), which debuted in June on the soundtrack of the hit Brazilian primetime soap opera “Avenida Brasil” is also in the repertory of Pedro Luís in Toronto.
