A Voz do Morro

The embryo from the historic samba group A Voz do Morro was conceived through the period where Zé Kéti was the musical director of Cartola’s restaurant Zicartola, where in fact the sambistas were for the very first time in close connection with middle-classed artists, intellectuals, and fans. The group later on took form inside a Sérgio Cabral system at Television Rio in 1962 which Zé Kéti, Cartola, Nelson Cavaquinho, Joacir Santana, Armando Santos, and Ventura participated in; using the first unique development, in 1963, comprising a number of the people of the famous musical Rosa de Ouro: Zé Kéti, Paulinho da Viola, Elton Medeiros, Jair perform Cavaquinho, Anescarzinho perform Salgueiro, Oscar Bigode, and José da Cruz. The group displayed among the 1st opportunities the samba composers from the hills needed to record their personal compositions; often that they had to market their tracks for insufficient an opportunity in the documenting business. The albums Roda de Samba, Vol. 1 (1964, with “Coração Vulgar” and “Conversa de Malandro” by Paulinho da Viola, and “Pecadora,” by Jair perform Cavaquinho/Joãozinho da Pecadora), Roda de Samba, Vol. 2 (which also got Nelson Sargento and released another two originals by Paulinho da Viola: “Jurar Com Lágrimas” and “Responsabilidade”), and Roda de Samba (1966, in an over-all atmosphere that attempts to replicate that of a roda de samba, or a samba get-together) had been Paulinho da Viola’s debut being a vocalist and composer. The monitors, in one of the most component never documented until then, had been compiled by the group’s associates.
