Vocals and guitar are ever since then the heart of Tinta Bossa. Additionally Tinta Bossa regularly
works with percussion and double-bass.
Autumn 2012, CD release : ' Caminho do Coração ' ! The title refers to one of the songs on this CD : ' Caminho ', composed by Erik Uhlenbusch , and is about the road or the way we all go in this life. The best thing is living the way your heart tells you, which is a beautiful way of living because it makes you happy and so it spreads happiness into the world ! In a happy world there cannot be war or animosity. That's impossible. The musicians of Tinta Bossa prefer this way of living.

Recorded in 2012 by The Imagineering Suite, Amersfoort,
Tinta Bossa has built up an extensive repertoire in its existence, always finding her own way in
this music, inspired by great Brazilian composers. The work of Antonio Carlos Jobim is still central, but
also pieces of Carlos Lyra, Jorge Ben Jor, João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfa, Dorival Caymmi and own
compositions by Erik Uhlenbusch, guitarplayer of Tinta Bossa, are on the program.
By composing her own music, Tinta Bossa wants to endure this beautiful style of music in creating melodic songs with special harmonies and rhythms. The lyrics of the own compositions are written by pupils of a Brazilian school, who had a Poetry Contest on writing a poem. All the poems of the kids were collected in a little book called ' Caminhos '.
Tinta Bossa provides an impassioned concert with the colourful new songs and new arrangements,
together with an enthusiastic presentation !
