Sérgio Bittencourt

The son of Jacob do Bandolim, Sérgio Bittencourt was a journalist by profession, but wrote successes of Brazilian popular music (and would definitely have left other important songs had he not passed away so precociously), like the wonderful “Modinha,” winner from the 1968 O Brasil Canta o Rio Festival, interpreted and recorded by Taiguara. In the II Event de Música Popular Brasileira (Event of Brazilian Popular Music, Television Record, Sept and Oct 1966), he received fourth place along with his “Canção de Não Cantar” through MPB-4’s rendition. His biggest strike, though, “Naquela Mesa,” a tribute to his dad documented by Elizeth Cardoso on her behalf LP Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (1972).
