We had the good fortune of connecting with Thales & Tuuh and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Thales & Tuuh, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
We are from Brazil! Our country has a lot of japanese influence because it has the biggest population of japanese people out of Japan. We were always fans of anime and we started our own anisong bands over 10 years ago, which eventually led to Nordex! The impact we manage to make on the scene is due to hard work and a lot of practice, for sure! There are no secrets, just pure love and effort.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
It was never easy, but if it was, it would not be that exciting! We learned that everything takes a LOT of time! You just gotta deal with it and keep moving forward! We know it is cliché, but it is true! NEVER GIVE UP if you believe your art is good!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We will split up in 2 parts because we live in different countries:

Thales (Canada): I would definetly take him/her to the amazing Japanese restaurants in the Toronto area (which are a lot!), to Canada Wondeland for some adrenaline boost, and to any amazing provincial park for a relaxing nature time!

Tuuh (Brazil): I would take him/her to Liberdade all week long! Tons of japanese events, foods, beverages and fun!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our families and the friends who always believed in us! Special shoutout to Kai Urusai, Highor Mattede, Lizzy, Josimar, and Ricardo Cruz!
