Mayuto Correa

The following information could be helpful to better explain Mayuto Correa’s career.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to parents that had just become a middleclass by moving from a family own farm at Rio State to the big city, suburb of São Gonçalo . There, Simonides Correa, his father, became the administrator of the large farm, Porto Novo, which is a town, now.

Simonides was a men of many trades, easier to be described by saying that there were just a few things he didn’t know how to do. Living in the new farm, with 40 bedrooms, surroundings were as before, but Simonides invested his money and time in business like candy facture, produce market, restaurant, painting contracting company, surplus sales, just to name a few. After his wife died, he decided to help the poor people of the largest slum in the world, Favela da Rocinha, in Rio de Janeiro. He secured the family with Mayuto’s uncle, Maurilho, in São Gonçalo and went on to bring schools, light, water, police station, health post and church to Rocinha....

PRESS QUOTES: ”Correa, who plays guitar in addition to every percussion instrument ever invented, turned the evening into a Brazilian jazz carnival. The rhythms were exhilarating whether on conga or cuica, the vocals alluring in English or Portuguese.” LEONARD FEATHER-The L.A.Times. **************************************************************************** “As for Mayuto, he is a non-stop, one-man rhythm section, adding considerable spice and seasoning, directing and inspiring his combo unostentatiously, and keeping the total sound romantic rather than erotic. It's a joyful blend---a challenge to anyone who thinks he or she can sit still.” HARVEY SIDERS - Los Angeles Herald Examiner. **************************************************************************** “We suggest that the next time Mayuto performs the seats be removed. We regret that we couldn't write more today -- its very hard to write/think while you are in motion -- since we are joining the rest of the audience in a moving, standing ovation (or was that just swaying and clapping). My wife Charlotte, who often accompanies me to these events and was in the past a professional dancer, began swaying after the opening bar of the first song. By the end, she had lots of company.” RICHARD WISEMAN - Beverly Hills News. *************************************************************************** “Finally Correa himself, who had done just about everything else during this exhausting hour, took the center stage for a wildly acrobatic tambourine dance.” LEONARD FEATHER - The L.A. Times. **************************************************************************** “Becides fielding a cohesive and talented jazz group, Mayuto manages to sing, play guitar and congas and play various other percussion instruments. A finer conga player we've never heard--Mayuto coaxes rhythms like no other from the congas. Give him a guitar and ask him to sing and he is equal to any Brazilian group we've heard--all by himself.” RICHARD WISEMAN - Beverly Hills News. ***************************************************************************** ”A fiery percussionist, full of lyricism and romantic beauty. These qualities blended into one make him one of those rare talents that people love to hear and musicians hope to play with.” Gabor Szabo
