Great Brazilian Music

Arnaldo Baptista

Born: July 6, 1948

Together with Rita Lee and Sérgio Dias, Arnaldo Baptista formed the famous psychedelic band Os Mutantes, who also was among the main attractions of the tropicalist musical revolution in Brazil in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. As a solo artist, Arnaldo Baptista retains some of the quirkiness of the Mutantes years, but his music is much more low key and melancholic.
