Antonio Adolfo is an important composer, having written songs recorded by many Brazilian and International artists. He also had a noted role in the process of making important music available through independent production, through the creation of the pioneer independent label Artezanal.
As an arranger, he worked for several musicians and singers.
The son of Yolanda Maurity, a music teacher and violinist of the orchestra of the Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, Antonio Adolfo began to study music very early. At seven, he began his violin studies with Paulina D'Ambrozzio. At 15, he took up piano, studying with Amyrton Vallim, Werther Politano, Wilma Graça and with the internationally renowned Eumir Deodato.
