Vital Farias is really a talented composer who blends the folkloric affects of his northeastern lifestyle with advanced elements. A lot of his compositions have already been documented by important performers such as for example Badi Assad, Fagner, Alceu Valença, Elba Ramalho, Zé Ramalho, and Geraldo Azevedo. He examined traditional music and graduated in traditional electric guitar in João Pessoa PB. In 1975 he transferred to Rio de Janeiro RJ and proved helpful being a musician for Chico Buarque’s play, Gota D’Água. “Ê Mãe” was the to begin his compositions to become documented. It was documented with Livardo Alves by Ari Toledo. Other performers to record effective interpretations of his music are Marília Barbosa (“Caso Você Case,” 1976, contained in Television Globo’s cleaning soap opera Saramandaia), Fábio Jr. (“Ai, Que Saudade D’Ocê” , contained in the cleaning soap opera Renascer), Netinho (“Ai, Que Saudade D’Ocê,” 1996), Fagner (“Canção Em Dois Tempos,” 1996), Alceu Valença, Elba Ramalho, Zé Ramalho, and Geraldo Azevedo (“Veja, Margarida,” within the present O Grande Encontro, that was documented live). He documented his first single record in 1978, Essential Farias (Polygram). As well as Geraldo Azevedo, Xangai, and Elomar, he participated within the present Cantoria (1984), where in fact the live albums Cantoria and Cantoria 2 had been documented.
