Wanderlea - Roberto Carlos - 1964-1965

Silvia Paula Jentsch's scrap-book kept on bulging through the years. Silvia had an eclectic, wide-ranging, all-embracing personality. She was an artist in her own right having made painting on china (porcelain) her own business. She was a busy bee but somehow she found time to keep on adding lyrics and images to her scrap-books. 

Silvia was initially a rock'n'roll fan having bought Elvis Presley's and Brenda Lee's albums when she was in her early teens. Listening to the radio she found out she was fond of Velha Guarda too - the Brazilian 1930s and 1940s pop music - that young people usually shunned from. Silvia was different. She could be dancing to a rock tune and then turn to an old waltz at the drop of a hat. 

When the Italian pop music invaded Brazil in late 1963, Silvia became an avid fan. Then in late-1964 and 1965, Brazilian rock aka Jovem Guarda became very popular and Silvia also made room for this new trend. Not only Wanderlea and Roberto Carlos, but Erasmo Carlos, Jerry Adriani.
