Caetano Veloso

Caetano Emanuel Viana Teles Veloso, known as Caetano Veloso, is a Grammy Award-winning Brazilian composer and singer, called “One of the greatest songwriters of the century”, whose voice “carries an abiding tenderness” and is sometimes considered the Bob Dylan of Brazil.

Veloso was born in Santo Amaro da Purificação, Bahia, the fifth of the seven children born to José Teles Veloso (”Seu Zeca”) (1901-1983) and Claudionor Viana Teles Veloso (”Dona Can�'”) (1907-). He chose the name for his baby sister (Veloso's parents's sixth child), named after a famous song of the time (18 June 1946) by Nelson Gonçalves.
