Biography

Alexandre Manoel Thiago de Mello (Manduka) (1952-2004) was son of a very famous Brazilian poet Thiago de Mello. During his childhood he learned to play guitar and always enjoyed the lyrical vein of his father’s house.
When he was 20 years old, he was living in Chile, following the exile of his family. There he emerged as a creative musician.
Influenced by Geraldo Vandre (protest and root songs) and Edu Lobo and Milton Nascimento, Manduka allied at his musicality an overflowing sound that can be linked to his am azonic roots. He gathered around him Chilean musicians (Baltazar - guitar, Pato - flute and charango, Julio - harmonica, Gabriel-tumbadora and Eduardo - Bongo) and the singer Soledad Bravo.
Manduka recorded eight songs, seven of his own and other from Violeta Parra.
After he recorded, in exile, several albums in Latin America and Europe. He launched in Brazil only one album (Eternal Wings) in ‘96.
