something good is happening in the music scene and 2v1g is responsible for it. more and more music lovers are embracing this sort of simple, heartfelt and touching acoustic lifestyle music, over the noisy, overly-commercial, overly-produced, manufactured music in the market.there's enough publicity for 2v1g so we won't be over-selling it here.

Brasiliero, a wonderfully diverse introduction to Brazilian music, is a sophisticated blend of folk-pop and cool jazz, as embraced by artists both well and little known, in the most popular styles: samba, bossa nova, and MBP (musica popular Brasileiro). As with Cuban music, the greatest influence on Brazilian music came from African slaves who were imported to farm sugar, tobacco, and cotton plantations. With that influence comes a complex rhythmic structure and a prevailing sense of melancholy. Bearing this out, "Daca de Solidao" ("Dance of Solitude") is deliciously thick as performed by the dusky-voiced Beth Carvalho. Chico Cesar's "Mama Africa" is a perfect sociopolitical pop hit, blending hard-hitting lyrics with bouncy percussion and Jamaican reggae. Other standouts include Jorge Ben's wiggly feel-good romp "O Namorado da Viuva" ("The Widow's Boyfriend") and Joao Bosco's dancing guitar on "Vatapa," which pays homage to the traditional dish of the same name. --Paige La Grone

“I think this is because Chinese pop music has gotten to a point where everything is over-arranged, over-produced, it’s lost some kind of intimacy. So I think 2V1G gave a breath of fresh air to the whole scene. It’s actually my best-selling album! To the point that it’s been pirated ” Roger dug out the pirated copy! “I had to buy one for myself. It cost me three ringgit!” He laughed. “It has three bonus tracks on it which have nothing to do with us. From Karamunsing.”
