Ar de Rock is Rui Veloso‘s debut album, released in 1980. More than a revelation from a singer-songwriter (Rui Veloso) and a lyricist (Carlos Tê), Ar de Rock is one of those albums that, improbably, captures the zeitgeist of our times.

From it were extracted the hugely successful singles “Chico Fininho” and “A Rapariguinha do Shopping”, which guaranteed the commercial viability of Portuguese rock, stimulating numerous musicians of the genre.

In 2000, the songs were covered by several artists on a tribute album.
