About Toquinho

After learning from Paulinho Nogueira how to play guitar, Brazilian Toquinho met Chico Buarque at the age of 17, deciding to start a music career soon after. In the mid-'60s, the artist composed his first song, called "Lua Cheia"; in addition, he played guitar for prominent local acts such as Sergio Ricardo and Alaíde Acosta. In 1969, Toquinho began a long time professional relationship with Vinicius De Moraes. To celebrate his contribution to Brazilian traditional music, BMG released 30 Años De Música in 1997. Chega de Saudade followed in spring 2001. ~ Drago Bonacich
