You already have time. I thought that, as he passed, Ana Bárbara would reconsider and understand the situation. I wanted to re-record one of the songs, and when I looked for it, precisely to recover my credit, there was no positive response, and no way. To date I continue with that illusion that we can reach an arrangement ”
