Dafé - "Best Of"
Classic Tracks from the Seventies "Black Rio"
Soul Funk Grooves from Legendary Singer. 1977 to 1979 Warner Music recordings
One of the greatest representatives of Brazilian soul music, Carlos Dafé has been recorded by such artists as Tânia Maria ("A Cruz") and Nana Caymmi ("Passarela"), in addition to his solo career (registered in six albums from 1977 to 1997). Carlos Dafé had his first model as musician in the figure of his father, who taught him several instruments and introduced him to choro and samba traditions. In the '60s, Dafé exercised his vocal possibilities as a crooner in São Paulo and Rio's nightclubs. His first solo album came in 1977 (Pra Que Vou Recordar). Influenced by Tim Maia and Cassiano, the Carioca (from Vila Isabel) suburban Carlos Dafé developed their soul music tinge, first reflected in his 1978's Venha Matar Saudades, where he was backed by the Banda Black Rio.
He was one of the pioneers of Brazilian Soul music and established himself as one of the most striking voices of the 70s. He sang alongside with genius like Tim Maia and began his career by integrating the band Fuzi 9 and the group Abolição.
From 1977 to 1979, Carlos Dafé recorded three legendary records for Warner Music. Some of the most striking themes from these recordings are now brought together in this compilation.
