Luna Fuzz DAO
I. BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Hello, we are Luna Fuzz DAO
Luna Fuzz is an Arts and Events production company. It’s a cultural movement based in Lisbon that sets out to break boundaries and mix different cultures and nationalities in Portugal. It is run by three Brazilian expats from Rio de Janeiro, who have been working in the cultural scene in Lisbon for a few years, and saw a unique opportunity to bring their skills together and shed light on other immigrant artists and promote a rich and ongoing exchange with Portuguese artists.

Who we are:
Tomaz Lenz (@tomazlenz): Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The artist received national attention with the artistic collective VARANDISTAS, which was composed by relevant names in the artistic scene in Rio de Janeiro. The project was celebrated with an original documentary produced by Canal Brasil called “Os Varandistas”. His friendship with Caio Soh, who was also part of the group, led to 5 songs that were written and played by Tomaz for Caio’s award-winning movie "Teus Olhos Meus’'. Alongside the band Wendy K, Tomaz spent some time in Austria, in an artistic immersion that resulted in a tour and an album called 14Lies. He has also been frontman of the band Motel 11-11. The band toured around Brazil and participated in relevant Brazilian television shows. Tomaz’s skills as a multi-instrumentalist have been heard by millions of people, in productions that range from Grunge to Brazilian Popular Music, such as Green Express, Maria Gadu ( in the album “Guelã”) and the DVD “Sarau: Novos Talentos da MPB” by Universal Music. Tomaz currently lives in Portugal, while he performs as a solo artist and produces his next work.
Within the NEAR Community, Tomaz has been part of an artistic project by Garden Collective DAO, and “Visualizers EP Fim de Carreira” by Criatura&Beri DAO.
Bernardo Peixoto (@berpeixoto): Audiovisual producer, videomaker, music producer and sound designer born in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, who has been living in Lisbon for 4 years.
