I have been focusing on a lot of early releases lately, so it was time to feature a squeaky clean new artist from the 1980s. Lá Vai Forró is a popular LP amongst DJs, which manages to update the forró sound (at the time) without falling back on many of the tackier elements that made the 80s contemptible for forró production. Janio Manicel commented on a forroemvinil post featuring this album that Buzil was the artist's nickname. His real name is José de Oliveira and he is from Campina Grande, hopefully living well, in his mid-60s.
