In 2013, Edgar invited Brazilian percussion legend Robertinho Silva to do a project called ‘Celebraçao’. It involved recordings and performances with a group of Dutch musicians with Robertinho as a special guest. An EP was recorded, featuring Ack van Rooijen on two tracks.
One of the tracks was dedicated especially to Ack and called ‘Velvet Horn’.
