It is with great sadness that, in 2020, we lost the poet, musician and lyricist Aldir Blanc to the Covid 19. One more life brutally interrupted to become part of the tragic story of the plague of this century.
I met Aldir Blanc through his partnership with guitarist and composer João Bosco. I personally think that this partnership as well as the one with master Guinga produced some of the most significant moments of our popular music.
Aldir Blanc developed a unique style when writing his lyrics. With the sensibility of a good chronicler, the landscapes of his narrative incorporated the distress of military dictatorship in Brazil (O Bebado e o Equilibrista), musical metalanguage (Baião de Lacan), and the theme so pursued by all good poets: time. Not the time that we count in hours, but everything that is imprinted in a life surrounded by beauty, rupture, horror, love, wait, anxiety, and finally enchantment.

This night I will be performing alongside my Trio, composed by Matheus Nova on bass and Marcinho Pereira on drums.
It will be a special night, dedicated to the poetry and memory of Aldir Blanc.
