Cauby Peixoto Brazil


Cauby Peixoto (Cauby Peixoto Barros - 2/10/1931 Niterói, RJ) is considered by many as Brazil's best singer. With his velvety and low timbre, influenced by Orlando Silva and Nat "King" Cole, Peixoto coined an individual style interpreting a kaleidoscope of genres ranging from tongue-in-cheek cheesy boleros to mambo (especially in the early '70s), romantic sambas-canções (his strongest point) such as his biggest hit "Conceição," and even a little bossa nova and jazz.
