Wilson Simoninha

Wilson Simoninha, boy of Wilson Simonal as well as the sibling of Utmost de Castro, is among the young revelations from the ’90s who are recovering samba and bossa nova classics through spirit/pop music, employed in shared collaboration using the Trama saving business. The live documented display Artistas Reunidos brings an example of such performers, with the involvement of Simoninha, Utmost de Castro, Jairzinho Oliveira and Luciana Mello (boy and girl of Jair Rodrigues), and Pedro Camargo Mariano (boy of Elis Regina and half-brother of associate João Marcello Bôscoli). Having shaped the Collection Combo with João Marcello Bôscoli, Simoninha also works together with him on the Trama documenting company. Simoninha’s 1st recording, Vol. 2 (2000), was praised by critics along with his reading of “European union e a Brisa” (Johnny Alf). The recording also included the originals “Orgulho” and “Aquele Gol” (created with Bernardo Vilhena). Carefully linked to Jorge Ben Jor, who published among Simonal’s biggest strikes (“País Tropical”), Simoninha paid tribute to Ben Jor in the vignette “Mas Que Nada.” The tribute refers to the motivation received from Ben Jor, in whose Banda perform Zé Pretinho Simoninha was an associate in the ’80s. In 2001, he performed in the Rock and roll in Rio Event, spending homage to his dad, Tim Maia, and Ben Jor.
