Paulinho Garcia

Paulinho Garcia

Born in Brazil, Paulinho Garcia began his musical career singing in a Sunday children’s program on his city’s principle radio station.  Through his teens, he continued performing and led his own band recording two albums.  While in Brazil, he composed, arranged, produced and performed numerous award winning jingles.  Arriving in the US in 1979, Paulinho recorded two albums with the band, Made in Brazil.

In 1991, he formed his own band, Jazzmineiro, whose 1996 eponymous CD was received with rave reviews.  In 2001, Paulinho received “Best Jazz Entertainer” award by the Chicago Music Awards.

Paulinho has traveled throughout the US and around the world many times to share his extraordinary voice and talent.

Jazzmineiro is the first and most critically acclaimed of Paulinho’s projects. It is a six plus musicians group dedicated to traditional and contemporary Brazilian Jazz.

FRAGILE is a another group of contemporary Brazilian jazz at its finest. The singing is crisp, fresh, and innovative. Garcia and Auguscik are the ideal Brazilian singing duo, and FRAGILE captures their sound perfectly!

“Dois No Choro” emerged from Julie’s love for Choro music and Paulinho’s dedication to the music of his native country, This intertwining of flute, voice and guitar elicits the sensations of a warm Rio de Janeiro night.
