Biography

Pernambuco, Brazil (1942 – 2010)

Arnaud Antônio Rodrigues (b. 1942-2010) was a Brazilian actor, singer, composer and humorist from Pernambuco. In the 70’s he formed with Chico Anysio and instrumentalist Renato Piau the musical group Baiano e os Novos Caetanos, which was a parody of the tropicália artist Caetano Veloso and the band Novos Baianos. Rodrigues played lead singer Paulinho Cabeça de Profetat (“Head Prophet”). The project yielded three studio recordings, and also began the career of Arnaud as a musician. He would eventually release a few solo albums.

Rodrigues’ 1978 song A Carta de Pero Vaz de Caminha, from the album Redescobrimento, is considered the first reggae song recorded in Brazil.

On February 16, 2010, Arnaud was with eight others in a boat on the lake Usina de Lajeado, 26 km from Palmas, when the boat ran aground onto a highway. Seven occupants of the boat, including Arnaud’s wife and two of their grandchildren, were rescued by locals, but Arnaud’s body was found by firefighters later.
