In 1997, Daúde #2 had success abroad with the tracks "Pata Pata" (version for Myriam Makeba's hit), "Vamos Fugir" (Gilberto Gil/Liminha, sung in a duet with Djavan), "Une Chanson Triste" (Herbert Vianna), and the electronic rendition for the jongo "As Baratas" (Darcy da Serrinha). Simbora (1999) remixed songs of the previous albums in a dance-oriented record. ~ Alvaro Neder
