Description

No doubt about it– Brazil is a musically gifted country, offering up a seemingly endless roster of talented performers. It’s a process that began with names like Noel Rosa, Carmen Miranda and Ary Barroso in the Golden Age, then through Bossa Nova, Tropicália and MPB and its showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Singer Emilio Santiago holds a unique position in this tropical mix. His crooning style is unmatched in Brazil’s modern-day sound, but never out of place: his warm baritone is a silky smooth combination of names that span generations like Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole, or Brazil’s Dick Farney. Or contemporary crooners like Michael Bublé and Harry Connick Jr.

Divining this style is one thing, but its more than that – when matched with the right songs, this Brazilian can draw an elegant breath to create magic out of thin air.

This song 'É Preciso Perdoar' (I Have To Forgive) was recorded with Bossacucanova in late 2012 and it now belwived to be his final recording before his passing on April 20, 2013.
