All Bazeado songs are original compositions. Pedros musical journey has taken him through Europe: he formed bands in Denmark and Belgium and in France he worked with Oba-Brasil. Since residing in England hes recorded with Da Lata (Songs from the Tin) as well as classic Brazilian fusion group Azymuth on Woodland Warrior, in addition to performing with Joyce, Les Etoiles and Bah Samba.
