That is quite a big deal. There have been rumblings and clues that Os Gemeos have something big planned in the coming days/weeks, and we were lucky enough to get a visit to their studio a few months back to check in and say hello.

In our November 2013 issue, on newsstands this week (or now), we have an exclusive conversation with one of Brazil's most exciting and talented artists, FINOK.
