Gonzaguinha

A major pop star in Brazil in the '70s and '80s, Gonzaguinha was the son of the famous Luiz Gonzaga, who did more than anyone to popularize the accordion-minded style known as forro. Gonzaga played as crucial a role in the development of forro as Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim did in the development of bossa nova, and Gonzaguinha had a lot to live up to when he decided to follow in his father's footsteps. But Gonzaguinha was a great singer in his own right, and his caressing, jazz influenced pop was the work of someone who was most certainly his own man. Named after his father, Gonzaguinha was born Luiz Gonzaga, Jr. in Rio de Janeiro, where he grew up in a poor favela (Brazilian shanty town). Witnessing so much poverty growing up made the singer/guitarist/composer quite adept at writing about social and political conditions among Brazil's poor, but he was equally compelling on songs that addressed sexual and romantic concerns. Gonzaguinha was at the height of his powers when, on April 9, 1991, he died in a car crash in the Brazilian state of Parana. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

Gonzaguinha eh o compositor brasileiro que mais canta e exalta a esperança, otimismo e unidade.
Desfrutamos hoje de um pais mais aberto e liberal por homens como ele.
todas as suas canções existe uma grande esperança e vontade de vencer.
ainda hoje sinto a falta do seu canto e real samba de unidade.

BRO! WE STILL MISS YOU., AND WHEREVER YOU ARE, THANK YOU
WHEN I AM DOWN YOU ALWAYS MAKE A WAY IN TO MY HEART TO PUT ME UP!
Gonzaginha was O CARA!
