Ary Barroso (born November 7, 1903 in Ubá, Minas Gerais and died February 9, 1964 in Rio de Janeiro) was a Brazilian composer, pianist and radio announcer. Ary Barroso was the most influential pre-bossa nova composer in Brazil and his songs were recorded by a lengthy list of artists including Carmen Miranda and João Gilberto. He received an Academy Award for Best Song nomination in 1944 for "Rio de Janeiro", as featured in the 1944 film, Brazil. Although he failed to win, he was presented a Merit Award from the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences for his work. In 1955, Barroso received the National Order of Merit, the greatest honor bestowed by the Brazilian government. "Aquarela do Brasil" ("Watercolor of Brazil"), also known simply as "Brazil", is one of the most popular Brazilian songs of all times.

Granda, Isabel

Granda, Isabel

Biography

María Isabel “Chabuca” Granda was born on September 3,1920, in a copper mining area in the region of Apurímac, in Peru. Early in her career her work was expressive and picturesque – evoking the romantic and beautiful neighborhood of Barranco in Lima, with its grand French houses with impressive entrances and winter gardens. She broke the conventional rhythmic structure of the waltz, later broke convention with her poetic cadences as well. Towards the end of her career, Chabuca Granda incorporated Afro-Peruvian rhythms into her work. She masterfully blended the suggestive and colorful rhythms into her work, enriching Peruvian popular music. In 1983 she dies in Fort Lauderdale due to health complications. Granda's song "La Flor De La Canela" has become an anthem for the city of Lima.

Abreu, Zequinha De

Abreu, Zequinha De

Biography

Brasilian composer Zequinha de Abreu (born José Gomes de Abreu) was born in Santa Rita do Passa Quatro on September 19, 1880 and died in São Paulo on January 22, 1935. During his lifetime, Zequinha de Abreu was a popular musician who enjoyed regional fame for his music. He was said to be quiet, happy, kind, and humble about his own success. He was involved in music for his whole life, performing, giving piano lessons to children, writing and selling his compositions, improvising for hours on the piano, and accompanying the performances of two of his own children, Durval and Dermeval. Tico Tico is a bird that inhabits throughout Brazil, except in the forests of Amazonian. It is however more frequent in the fields and highland areas of Southeast. In the cities, where it occupies gardened areas, it sweeps the soil in search of crumbs and a lot of times it is seen in company of the sparrow. Its short and conical beak characterizes it. Zequinha de Abreu composed the choro [cry], TICO-TICO NO FUBA [Tico-tico in the maize flour], in 1917. Divulged later by Carmem Miranda in the United States, it became one of the Brazilian popular music more recorded all over the world. That title was chosen because the rhythm of the melody suggests the jumps of that bird when pecking the maize flour grains.

Villoldo, Angel & Matos Rodríguez, Gerardo

Villoldo, Angel & Matos Rodríguez, Gerardo

Biography

Angel Villoldo (1868-1919) was one of Argentina’s pioneer tango composers. On November 1905 at the “Restaurante Americano,” José Luis Roncallo and his orchestra premiered Villodo’s “El Choclo”. Roncallo fretted about the idea of playing a tango for the “crème-de-la-crème” of Buenos Aires society, but the sound of this new piece was so compelling that he sneaked it in and introduced the new work as a “danza criolla,” a Creole dance. Villoldo named it “El Choclo,” the ear of corn, because “…I loved it from the very first note, and for me the ear of corn is the tastiest ingredient of the ‘puchero’, a meat and vegetables stew…” La Cumparsita was composed in 1919 by Uruguayan musician Gerardo Matos Rodríguez (1897-1948). It is one of the most famous and recognizable tangos of all time. Translated as "The little parade," the work was first presented in Confitería La Giralda, in downtown Montevideo. Though it was written in Uruguay by a Uruguayan composer, Argentines have sometimes claimed this famous tango as their own, based on the fact that its lyrics were written by two Argentine poets, Maroni and Pascual Contursi, although without authorization from the composer.
