Biography

Brazilian singer-songwriter João Bosco was born João Bosco de Freitas Mucci in 1946 and began his working life as an engineer. After relocating to Rio de Janeiro he began to collaborate as a songwriter with Elis Regina who, prior to her untimely death at the age of 36 was one of Brazil's best loved and most famous artists. Regina's recordings of Bosco's songs projected him into the limelight and his career began to take off.

Bosco's style is an intriguing fusion of three primary musical sources - bossa nova, Afro-American and Arabic with some American jazz influences thrown into the mix. The combination has won Bosco numerous accolades amongst lovers of MPB (música popular Brasileira). Bosco is a prolific recording artist with more than 30 studio albums to his credit; during his career he has written many songs which have become ingrained into Brazil's musical culture, some of the most notable being 'Papel Mache', 'Latin lover' and 'Jade'. Although Bosco is now in his seventies he still continues to write and record and maintains a busy touring schedule.
