He produced a Brazilian nation duo with a pal and transferred to Rio de Janeiro RJ at this 18. There he proved helpful at circuses and pubs in working-class boroughs. Shortly he was making songs that defined the unhappy atmosphere of the night time for the reason that environment. His initial composition, “European union Vou Tirar Você Deste Lugar” (I’ll Consider You Outta Right here), told a tale about a guy deeply in love with a prostitute. Getting one of is own strikes, José performed it with Caetano Veloso in the Phono 73 display, along with “Pare de Tomar a Pílula,” another creation by José.

It had been the start of achievement, José sold an incredible number of copies of his albums, through the 1st one, documented that yr, through the ten others until 1994. In 1977 he had written the rock and roll opera O Filho de José e Maria.
