Brazilian guitarist, singer and songwriter. Piry Reis, he sings and plays acoustic guitar, with a music that mixes songs, bossa and samba with a vaguely psychedelic touch. Toured worldwide with Egberto Gismonti and and Robertinho Silva in the 80s and 90s. His music has been performed by Celia, Charlie Haden and Jan Garbarek. His four solo albums are all rare as hens’ teeth and have been known to fetch a hefty bounty.
His dfebut album 'Vocês querem mate?' from 1970 is without a doubt the most free-spirited release in the Quartin catalogue. A forgotten, dreamy and ethereal, groovy Brazilian psych-folk treasure, at its finest.
