Biography

Vinicius de Moraes, born Marcus Vinicius da Cruz de Melo Morais in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was a seminal figure in contemporary Brazilian music. As a poet, he wrote lyrics for a great number of songs that became all-time classics. He was also a composer, a playwright, a diplomat and, as an interpreter of his own songs, he left several important albums. Antonio Pecci Filho (born in São Paulo, Brazil on July 6, 1946), originally nicknamed Toquinho by his mother, is a Brazilian singer and guitarist.

Their partnership started in 1970, when Vinicius invited Toquinho to participate in a series of live performances in Buenos Aires with the brazilian singer Maria Creuza.

Known also from his partnership with Antonio Carlos Jobim, Baden Powell, Carlos Lyra and Francis Hime, Vinicius worked with Toquinho until 1980, when he died. Together, they composed a remarkable number of hits: Tarde Em Itapuã, A Tonga da Mironga do Kabuletê, Regra Três, Aquarela (released after Vinicius death).
