Alexandre Kassin, Moreno Veloso, and Domenico Lancelotti form a musical trio, which might very well have been called a group, if it weren't for the fact that they, in rather unorthodox fashion, focus on each individual group member instead of the group as unite. Thus, at the release of the trio's first CD in 2001, with Moreno Veloso as singer, they called themselves Moreno +2. In 2003, it was Domenico's turn to stand in the limelight, and the trio called itself Domenico +2. Subsequently, with their third CD release in 2006, the trio adopted the name Kassin +2. Whatever they call themselves, Kassin, Domenico, and Moreno have come to be seen as one of the hippest and most creative songwriting teams of the so-called modern MPB from Rio de Janeiro.
