The record would be released in Europe in 2005. In 2006, Pedra Branca obtained visibility through television broadcasting with their prominent performance at Skol Beats Festival. The band's performance at Boom Festival, in Portugal, gained them success with both critics and audiences, marking the world premiere of their second album, "Feijoada polifônica" with Chill-art/WFC, this time with international distribution by Arabesque. In their live concerts, Pedra Branca develops improvisations among themselves and with guest musicians. The concept of "jam" includes parallel performances from dancers, actors and VJs.
