Dom Um Romao

Dom Um Romao - percussion (1925 - 2005)

A legendary name in bossa nova, and one of the premier drummers who introduced Brazilian percussion and rhythms into jazz, Dom Um Romão began his career playing drums at balls and cabarets in Rio De Janeiro at the end of the 40s. He also worked at Rádio Tupi supporting singers and formed, in the 50s, the group Copa Trio, playing at Beco das Garrafas in Copacabana.

In 1958 Romão participated in the recording of the record “Canção do Amor Demais” by Elizeth Cardoso, with musics by Tom Jobim and guitar by João Gilberto - the album is considered a landmark in bossa nova.
