CVMA 2012: Bob - Rapacinhu Lantuna: is one of the nominees for Best New Artist

Silvestre Alberto Mascarenhas, "Bob", is 33 years and is originally from Calheta de São Miguel. He lived there until age seven, when he went to SOS Children's Village Assomada. There Bob met and shared musical skills with Orlando Pantera, a figure he considers his "master".
The passion for music came at age 14, when SOS Children's Village Assomada opened a music school for all children at the Village. Pantera was one of the monitors of the school.
He began to learn small drumming instruments, but the passion for guitar was great and at the end of the class, when nobody was there, Bob was practicing alone.
In 1998 he gave his first acting in the central square of Assomada. At that time, he was still an insecure young, therefore, interpreted the songs of his "master" Orlando Pantera. The public acceptance surprised him and from then on he began to introduce his compositions in the shows where he performed.
And it was in the central square of Assomada, the city where he became man, that Bob had introduced his first solo album, "Rapacinhu Lantuna". The album according to Bob is a compilation of songs he wrote since the '90s, which shyness and insecurity left forgotten in a drawer.
"Rapacinhu Lantuna" is a tribute to Pantera. “Undi kim bai bu ta sta djuntu ku mi”, you can hear it in one of his song and is one of the most memorable phrases of this disc. "When I'm onstage I feel his presence", confesses Bob.
