In addition to the bass, will be auctioned a guitar autographed by singer Ivete Sangalo, a costume of the singer Gabriel Diniz and a piece of clothing by actor Caio Castro, among other Brazilian actors.More information about the auction has not yet been released.
Groovador gained notoriety from the general public after Black published his video on Instagram. In the subtitle, the actor and singer wrote: “please can someone put me in touch with Junior Bass Groovador”. After that, the internet went crazy cheering for the meeting of the two musicians, which took place on the festival’s World Stage last Saturday (28), when together they played a forró version of Nirvana’s “Smell Like Teen Spirit”.
