Adoniran Barbosa (August 6, 1910 — November 23, 1982) was a brazilian artist: composer, singer, humorist and actor. His real name was João Rubinato and he was born in Valinhos, São Paulo. Both his parents are from Italy, from Cavarzere, Venice. He took his artistic name from character invented in his own radio show. He is probably the only musician from São Paulo appreciated by musicians from Rio de Janeiro, where the heart of samba is.

  • His songs are so good you'll never get tired of them. His lyrics are top class, you will know about the society he lived in and you will get lots of humor, you will get references to the Beatles and to his friends. His music is complex yet simple, he is a master.
