Carlos Bernardo was born in Cardiff, Wales, in December 1971, son of Brazilian parents. He arrives in Rio de Janeiro only a few months later, and when he was 9 years old he moves with his family to Vit�ria, a city-island in Brazil. In the middle eighties, his passion for Rock music puts him in the way of music. The guitar was his first instrument. He released his first record in 1992, Confusion Jazz co., taken from the name of the group he had formed one year before. The need to know more about music led Carlos Bernardo to take part in several courses and festivals in Brazil. He had then the opportunity to study as well as to play with Nelson Faria and Toninho Horta, and to meet some young musicians with whom he collaborates until today. In 1995 he recorded his first solo album: Pac�fico. In 1996 this Record was awarded the Guananira award in phonographic production of Espirito Santo, Brazil.
