Interpreting a syncopated samba inside a beginner display in the Rádio Tupi in 1955, he was observed for the outing and employed immediately. Matias documented his first recording in 1956, which included “Minha Nega Na Janela” (with Doca). Within the next yr he documented his 1st LP, Germano Matias, O Sambista Diferente, that was awarded using the Prêmio Roquette Pinto as well as the Prêmio Guarani. In 1958 he previously one of is own biggest strikes, the samba “Guarde a Fine sandália Dela” (with Sereno), that was re-recorded later on from the duo Elis Regina/Jair Rodrigues. In the ’60s Matias worked well in additional radio and Television channels of São Paulo and continuing to record. One of is own hits of this period was Zé Kéti’s samba “Malvadeza Durão.” He also documented works by other conventional samba composers like Nelson Cavaquinho (“História de Um Valente”).
