Biografia

Considered one of the forefathers of Bossa Nova, Brazilian singer and composer Carlos Lyra was born on May 11, 1933, in the carioca neighborhood of Botafogo. A precocious talent, he began making music with a toy piano at the age of 7 and later picked up the harmonica. After suffering a sports-related injury that left him bedridden for six months, he taught himself to play the guitar using the Paraguaçu method. "Quando Chegares," his first original composition, appeared in 1954. That same year, Geraldo Vandré performed the Lyra original "Menina" at TV Rio's Festival da Canção. The song was later turned into a hit by singer Sylvinha Telles in 1955. Along with Vinicius de Moraes, Tom Jobim, and Ronaldo Bôscoli, he became a key member of the burgeoning Bossa Nova scene in the late 1950s and even contributed three tracks to João Gilberto's Chega de Saudade (1959), regarded by many as the album that forever changed the landscape of Brazilian music. During the 1960s, his creative partnership with poet Vinicius de Moraes spawned a slew of hits that included "Você e Eu," "Coisa Mais Linda," "Primavera," and "Minha Namorada," as well as a stage musical titled Pobre Menina Rica. At the peak of his popularity, he performed the songs "María Ninguém," "Lobo Bobo," and "Influência do Jazz," at the 1962 Bossa Nova Concert at Carnegie Hall. Over the following years, Carlos Lyra developed a prolific recording career that reached its zenith during the 1970s with titles such as …E no Entanto é Preciso Cantar (1971), Eu & Elas (1972), and Herói do Medo (1975). Além da Bossa, a collection of previously unreleased songs, appeared in 2019 to commemorate the 65th anniversary of his professional debut.
