Great Brazilian Music
 

Chico Buarque

Born: June 19, 1944

About:
One of the legends of Brazilian music, with a back catalogue replete with timeless classics and masterpieces. Much like Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque is one of those rare talents who has consistently managed to pare brilliant music with equally impressive lyrics. Chico Buarque’s music has almost always been based on the samba and bossa nova traditions of his native Rio de Janeiro.
