After learning from Paulinho Nogueira how to play guitar, Brazilian Toquinho met Chico Buarque at the age of 17, deciding to start a music career soon after. In the mid-'60s, the artist composed his first song, called "Lua Cheia"; in addition, he played guitar for prominent local acts such as Sergio Ricardo and Ala+¡de Acosta. In 1969, Toquinho began a long time professional relationship with Vinicius De Moraes. To celebrate his contribution to Brazilian traditional music, BMG released 30 A+¦os De M+¦sica in 1997. Chega de Saudade followed in spring 2001. ~ Drago BonacichPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
