From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vinicius Cantuária (born April 29, 1951) is a Brazilian singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer and percussionist. He is associated with Bossa nova and Brazilian jazz. Originally from the Amazonian city of Manaus, Cantuária grew up in Rio and relocated to New York City in the mid-1990s. His career spans several zones of Brazilian music: he founded the Brazilian rock group "O Terço" in the 1970s, released six solo albums in Brazil in the 1980s that include his hit songs "Só Você" and "Lua e Estrela" and pioneered the world of neo-Brazilian music with his first international release Sol Na Cara in 1996. Since moving to the United States, Cantuária has been a leading figure in the downtown New York Jazz and contemporary music scenes. His albums, always critics' favorites, have featured collaborations with Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, Brad Mehldau, Arto Lindsay, Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot, David Byrne and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Cantuária also produces various other artists, such as the successful debut album of Aline de Lima in 2006, also from the French Naïve label, which released his Cymbals album.
