Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Francis Hime (b. 31 Aug 1939, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), started playing and studying piano to the six years of age, forced by his mother. But his fear of the rotative bank became a pleasure. He made his way as a good songwriter and pop arrangements.

Partner of Vinícius de Moraes e Chico Buarque, the popular songwriter back to his old school performance, mixing the both styles. Wrote the Sinfonia no. 1, Carnavais para Coro Misto e Orquestra, Fantasia para Piano e Orquestra, Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro de São Sebastião and is now working in Ópera do Futebol.

Carioca, married with Olivia Hime, three daughters’ father and a grandaughter’s grandfather, Francis lived in LA in 70, where took courses with great names of the movies, like Hugo Friedhofer, David Raksin, Lalo Schiffrin and, by suggestion from this last, composition with Paul Glass. Made soundtracks for many movies, like Dona Flor e Seus Dois Maridos - by Bruno Barreto, Lição de Amor- by Eduardo Escorel (winning Coruja de Ouro and Kikito by the both), A Noiva da Cidade - by Alex Vianny, etc. One of the great names of the Brazilian music, Francis was recorded by Elis Regina, Milton Nascimento, Roberto Carlos, Tony Bennett and Bill Evans.
