Vicente Barreto is an effective composer, recorded by Alceu Valença, Elba Ramalho, Ney Matogrosso, Tom Zé, Vânia Abreu, Vânia Bastos, and Mônica Salmaso, amongst others. His partnerships consist of renowned composers like Vinícius de Moraes, Paulo César Pinheiro, Gonzaguinha, Elton Medeiros, Celso Viáfora, and Chico César. With eight single albums where he displays his personal contact on the violão, focused in one right-hand golf swing, he remains practically unknown regardless of the achievement of his music, like “Tropicana” (documented in 1982 by co-author Alceu Valença) and “Baião de Quinji” (his initial composition to become recorded with the Quinteto Violado), alongside “Poeira Nos Olhos,” “Tirana,” “Trem Bom,” “Vou pra Campinas,” and “Pelas Ruas Que Andei.” Also was in charge of the basic plans of Estudando o Samba, Tom Zé’s recording, which was in charge of his finding by David Byrne. Vicente Barreto’s dad performed the violão in his free time, but, fearing for future years of his child, prohibited him from learning the device. Nevertheless, Barreto started his self-taught violão research, concealed from his dad. At ten he performed for his dad the demanding choro “Magoado” (Dilermando Reis). The older guy, with tears in his eye, granted the talented son permission to keep his studies. Surviving in little Bahian upstate villages of Salgadalha and later on Serrinha, Barreto started to compose extremely early, but was ashamed of his tunes, which he utilized to respect as redneck music. When he paid attention to Gilberto Gil’s “Expresso 2222,” he noticed the same regional impact was used as severe music, and made a decision to dedicate even more work to his compositional function. Spending a while playing in Salvador BA, he shortly transferred to Rio, employed with the Philips label to record his first one in 1971, with “Ça Mãe, Ça Pai,” his just primary with music and lyrics by himself. In 1973 he transferred to São Paulo, creating a precarious living away from shows on the school circuit. There he fulfilled Tom Zé and was asked to accompany him in live shows and recordings. Alongside the work with Tom Zé, Barreto continuing to accompany various other artists in displays and periods while documented his solo function. In 1998 released through Dabliu Mão Direita (correct hands, where he centered on his distinct right-hand golf swing). In the next calendar year, released Ano Bom (Eldorado), and his 8th record, E a Turma Chegando pra Dançar (Dabliú).
