Biography

Cascatinha e Inhana are celebrated as one of the most popular duos of their time, having beaten all selling records with songs like “Índia” and “Meu Primeiro Amor” — 500,000 copies, along with the other hundreds of thousands in their subsequent recordings of those songs included in their LPs. In their long and prolific career, they recorded 54 78 rpm albums and 30 LPs, selling thousands of copies. They also won important awards like the Roquette Pinto Trophy and received six gold records for sales of over 100,000 copies. Among the songs made classics by them, there’s “Guacyra” (Hekel Tavares/Joraci Camargo), “Flor do Cafezal” (Luiz Carlos Paraná), and “Triste Caboclo” (Paraguassu).

Cascatinha (Francisco dos Santos) was a poor 18-year-old young man in Marília, upstate São Paulo, when the Nova Iorque Circus came into town in need of a drummer. He joined the circus and, learning to play the guitar, started a partnership with Chopp, a trapeze artist and singer. In Araras, Cascatinha attracted the attention of the future Inhana (Ana Eufrosina da Silva), who was a perfect intone part-time singer who worked as maid. The three of them formed the Trio Esmeralda and continued with the circus. In 1941, they moved to Rio de Janeiro (Rio de Janeiro) and went to live together. Soon they dissolved the trio due to disagreements.
