The Fundo de Quintal, the pioneers of the pagode style, had their genesis within the Bloco do Cacique. The group started its professional career in 1980 and has won several prizes, including nine Sharp awards (the most important of Brazilian popular music awards). They've sold several million copies of the 19 albums they had recorded up to the year 2000, several of them achieving gold and platinum record status. His songs have also been adopted as the themes for widely popular soap operas. In the late '70s, Beth Carvalho and her producer Rildo Hora (who would be the group's producer) invited the Fundo de Quintal to be supporting musicians for the album PÃ© No ChÃ£o. The founders were Almir Guineto, Jorge AragÃ£o, Neoci, Sereno, Sombrinha, Ubirajara (Bira Presidente), and Ubirany. Arlindo Cruz and Valter 7 Cordas joined as musicians of the early formations. Some of the group's hits are "Vai Na Conversa Dela," "E Eu NÃ£o Fui Convidado," "SÃ³ Pra Contrariar," "Boca Sem Dente," "Miudinho," "ParabÃ©ns Pra VocÃª," "Malandro Sou Eu," "Andei, Andei," "Do Fundo do Nosso Quintal," "NÃ£o Sonhando Eu Sou Feliz," "TÃ´ Que TÃ´." ~ Alvaro NederPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
