This Sunday (14), we celebrate Father’s Day in Brazil. And thinking about it, Vagalume made a more than special selection of songs as a tribute.

We’ve put together 50 different songs with lyrics that talk about a father’s love, but also the feeling of admiration from the point of view of his daughters and sons. In short: this is a special with a lot of love involved and dedicated to all parents.
