The founder of Os Novos Baianos, Moraes Moreira was the primary author of the group (with lyricist Luís Galvão). Departing for an extremely successful solo profession, he has documented many albums, usually fusing the wealthy folklore of Bahia with rock and roll and pop affects. He also became an ardent fighter for the reason for the Bahian Carnival, advertising shows with this repertory throughout Brazil. His compositions have already been documented by many interpreters, included in this Gal Costa (her rendition of “Festa perform Interior” was the most performed track in Brazil in 1982), Daniela Mercury, Fagner, Simone, Zizi Possi, Ney Matogrosso, Elba Ramalho, and Marisa Monte. Elevated in Bahia’s hinterlands, Moraes Moreira contacted the violão (classical guitar), inspired by Roberto Carlos. At 19, he shifted to Salvado, BA, where he frequented classes on the Seminário de Música da Bahia. Then joined up with the vocal quartet Canto Quatro, a MPB-4 clone who followed Dorival Caymmi. He got some music classes with Tom Zé and uncovered his trend for the trios-elétricos. In the boarding home where he resided in Salvador, he became familiar with Paulinho Boca de Cantor and Luís Galvão, with whom he’d form Operating-system Novos Baianos in 1968. In 1975, he still left the group for his single profession. In 1976, he became a member of the historical Trio Unétrico de Dodô e Osmar (the to begin Bahia), who still got a newbie (but currently virtuosic) mandolinist, Armandinho. Moreira got huge success with this task, which led him to create frevos and sambas for the group, learning to be a prominent fighter in the reason for the Bahian Carnival. He created two LPs using the Trio Unétrico, the final one getting É a Massa. “Pombo Correio,” released in 1978, reached the nationwide strike parade. In 1983, he created his Projeto Brasil, some shows through most of Brazil’s capitals that explored the wealthy folklore from the Carnival of Bahia.
