The connection between Esteban Tavares and Engenheiros do Hawaii goes far beyond the professional sphere. Tavares, who played with the band leader between 2013 and 2015, is a fan of the group. One of the proofs is the tattoo, on the top of the musician's hand, which symbolizes the album "A Revolta Dos Dândis", successful record released in 1987.

Now, Tavares further nourishes this connection with an acoustic version for "Vida Real". The song, with gessinger's rough lyrics, was originally released on the project "Humberto Gessinger Trio", in 1996. That occasion marked the musician's first turn off the label "Engenheiros do Hawaii", although the disc was later integrated into the discography of the band.

"It was a pleasure to record this composition. I've rarely done versions of other songs, but this has always been very important in my life. When I had the idea of doing this post-pandemic acoustic EP it was a song that I thought had a lot to do with the feeling we've been through in the last few years, so nothing fairer than this song that has accompanied me my whole life to be part of my work too”, says Tavares.

"Vida Real" is one of the tracks that include an acoustic EP with versions of tracks that have been released in recent months. “Temporal”, with Roberta Campos; “Basta”, “As Terças Podem Se Inverter”, with Lucas Silveira and “Naquela Esquina” have been released, are available on digital platforms and will be on the EP that is scheduled for release this year.
