Zeca Baleiro began to perform in S+úo Lu+¡s do Maranh+úo MA around 1975. After years acting as composer/interpreter in several cities like Belo Horizonte MG and S+úo Paulo SP, he had his big break when Gal Costa invited him to appear in her special for Ac+¦stico MTV in 1997. His first two albums, Por Onde Andar+í Stephen Fry? and V+¦ Imbol+í, 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 (S+úo 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 [RoviLink="VW"]Mulheres. Baleiro has performed in Cannes (France), Montreux (Switzerland), Porto (Portugal), and Cartagena (Spain).
