How it all began:
Hamburg 1982 or maybe 83. There was a Brazilian restaurant right on the Reeperbahn, ‘Tropical Brasil’ (I hope I remember that right). Run by Emmanoel (Neco), Viviane and Lucia. And Junior, the little brother. Neco played violão and sang,Lucia cooked, and Viviane was the communicator, because she spoke German. That was my musical home. And that’s where I met my buddies Danny Dattel, Christian von Richthofen, and TA Thomas Altmann. Brasil in front of the door step. Only in Hamburg!
