Chico Buarque - Brazilian Singer & Songwriter

Chico Buarque is my favourite Brazilian singer, guitarist and composer. He was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1944 and became involved at the end of the 1950s with the "Bossa Nova" movement, spearheaded by Tom Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes.

He became known as an outspoken opponent of the military dictatorship. He had to serve a short prison sentence for his song Roda Viva (1968) and lived in exile in Italy in the early 1970s. In 1974 all his songs were banned in Brazil.

Two of his early famous songs ridicules the military dictatorship: Apesar de Você (1970) and
Homenagem ao Malandro (1985)

Some of his more recent songs are:
Cálice with Milton Nascimento
Tatuagem/Esse Cara with Caetano Veloso
O Que Será with Milton Nascimento
Samba do Grande Amor with Gal Costa
