LUIZ CLAUDIO

[ Curvelo: 1935 ] With a career branching in two directions – music and plastic arts – Luiz Claudio is recognized by critics as possessing one of the finest voices in Brazil. Among his most important artistic accomplishments was release of Minas Sempre – Viva, a double-LP set containing folk songs from Minas Gerais, the album’s complete score, and drawings and paintings by Luiz Claudio himself, an artist of many talents. Through his work, this native son of Minas Gerais endeavors to preserve the memory of our people and add his tiles to the beautiful mosaic of Brazilian music.
