ERASMO CARLOS

L

a maravillosa biografía musical de Erasmo Carlos tiene dos
caras. Primero, su colaboración como compositor con su
amigo Roberto Carlos, que marcó el universo emocional y
las texturas nostálgicas de la balada latinoamericana en los
años 70. Y también, su brillante carrera como solista, que incluye
algunos de los discos más emotivos y originales en la historia de
la música brasileña.
Erasmo Esteves nació en Río de Janeiro en 1941 y ganó
notoriedad a fines de los años 60 como parte del movimiento jovem
guarda-la contrapartida brasileña de los Beatles y Bob Dylan,
hippies de pelo largo, y guitarras eléctricas. Su histórica colaboración
con Roberto Carlos, integrante de la misma movida, produjo baladas
clásicas como "Sua Estupidez", "Detalhes", "A Cigana", "Proposta" y
"O Progresso", entre muchas otras.
Erasmo Carlos evolucionó de compositor de melodías soleadas y
estética inocente de sus días con la jovem guarda para transformarse
en un sofisticado creador de discos conceptuales caracterizados por
dejos de psicodelia, melodías sutiles, la presencia ineludible de la
saudade brasileña y letras llenas de poesía y existencialismo. En el
2014 ganó un Latin GRAMMY a Mejor Álbum De Rock Brasileño por
Gigante Gentil. Combinando el éxito comercial con la más absoluta
independencia artística, Erasmo Carlos continúa sorprendiendo e
inspirando con cada nuevo proyecto.

19TH ANNUAL LATIN GRAMMY AWARDS ®

T

here are two parts to the remarkable musical biography
of Erasmo Carlos. First, his songwriting partnership with
close friend and collaborator Roberto Carlos, which helped
define the emotional scope and nostalgic textures of Latin
American balladry in the '70s; and second, his brilliant solo career,
which includes some of the most unpredictable and evocative
albums in the history of Brazilian music.
Born Erasmo Esteves in Rio de Janeiro in 1941, the singer became
famous in the late '60s as part of the youth oriented jovem guarda
movement-Brazil's counterpart to the Beatles and Bob Dylan, longhaired hippies, and electric guitars. His record-breaking collaboration
with Roberto Carlos, a member of the same wave, produced classic
ballads such as "Sua Estupidez," "Detalhes," "A Cigana," "Proposta,"
"O Progresso," and many others.
His music evolved from the sunny melodies and innocent
approach of his jovem guarda days into a more sophisticated
creation of conceptual albums marked by touches of psychedelia,
deliciously oblique melodies, the ever-present touch of Brazilian
saudade, and lyrics steeped in poetry and existentialism. In 2014,
he received a Latin GRAMMY for Best Brazilian Rock Album for
Gigante Gentil. Combining commercial success with relentless
artistic independence, Erasmo Carlos continues to surprise and
delight with each new project.
