Araken Peixoto has been featured two times on Parallel Realities playing as member of Djalma Ferreira'a conjunto.
Now we have the opportunity to enjoy his solo album, recorded for Discos Drink, a company run by Djalma Ferreira. Araken has another album released for the same high spirited recording label, which has, by the way, published (as far as I could find out) altogether 11 albums, most of them starring, no surprise here, Djalma Ferreira with his conjunto.

PROBABLE RELEASE DATE by Brazilliance:
I assume, this fine album is from 1963 because the earliest verifiable recording of A Canção Que Nasceu do Amor is also from 1963 by Araken's brother Cauby Peixoto. Unfortunately, the catalogue numbers of Discos Drink are not exactly in chronological order which is why they are not reliable.
