Zeca Baleiro began to perform in SÃ£o LuÃs do MaranhÃ£o MA around 1975. After years acting as composer/interpreter in several cities like Belo Horizonte MG and SÃ£o Paulo SP, he had his big break when Gal Costa invited him to appear in her special for AcÃºstico MTV in 1997. His first two albums, Por Onde AndarÃ¡ Stephen Fry? and VÃ´ ImbolÃ¡, won gold records. He was also nominated for the 2000 Latin Grammy Awards in the Best Pop Album category. In 1999 he was awarded Best Singer by APCA (SÃ£o Paulo's association of art critics), and in 1998 won three Sharp prizes in the pop/rock category, as best song, best album, and revelation. Songs off his first CD were chosen for soundtracks of TV Globo soap operas; "Samba do Approach" (off the second one) was included in TV Globo's series Mulheres. Baleiro has performed in Cannes (France), Montreux (Switzerland), Porto (Portugal), and Cartagena (Spain). He wrote the music of the show MÃ£e Gentil (Ivaldo Bertazzo), participated in the Os 5 no Palco project (with Lenine, Chico CÃ©sar, Paulinho Moska, and Marcos Suzano), as well as Songbook Chico Buarque, Balaio do Sampaio (a tribute to SÃ©rgio Sampaio), and Projeto Lusofonia (Martinho da Vila). Baleiro produced the albums of Ceumar and PatrÃcia Amaral, and also had his video "Proibida Pra Mim" presented in the cinema. ~ Alvaro NederPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
