Video footage of SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser performing cover versions of DEEP PURPLE's "Burn" and JIMI HENDRIX's "Purple Haze" with Brazilian rock, soul music, funk and jazz musician Ed Motta in the studio. The footage was shot in September.

Motta, 40, is the nephew of late Brazilian singer Tim Maia. His musical career started as vocalist of the hard rock band KABBALAH, though his first album was with the band CONEXAO JAPERI in 1988. In 1990, Motta departed to begin his solo career, recording his debut, "Um Contrato Com Deus", where he played almost all the instruments himself. Since then he has released several solo albums. In 1997 he supplied to the soundtrack to the film "Pequeno DicionĂ¡rio Amoroso" ("The Book of Love").
In 1999, he translated Phil Collins' songs for the Disney film "Tarzan" into Portuguese (Brazilian version).

His album "Aystelum" was nominated for a Latin Grammy award in 2006 in the Latin jazz category.
