Born in Brazil’s impoverished northeast region, the titular singer, composer, and master of the accordion rose to international prominence playing with bossa nova hitmakers like Toquinho and tropicalia greats like Gal Costa and Gilberto Gil. Collecting a variety of new interviews with his collaborators, rare archival footage, and toe-tapping performances, this portrait manages to be both informative and moving to longtime fans and accessible to those who are learning of his talents for the first time. Co-presented with Cinema Tropical.
