Artist Profiles: Vinicius de Moraes

Vinicius de Moraes

Marcus Vinicius da Cruz e Mello Moraes, better known as Vinicius de Moraes was born October 19, 1913 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Vinicius de Moraes was one of the most influential figures of the Bossa Nova and Brazilian popular music. He worked with many other Brazilian artists and composers including Antonio Carlos Jobim. Together, the two partners gave birth to words and images of Brazil so strong that many around the world cannot think of Brazil without hearing “The Girl From Ipanema” or recalling the images, colors, feelings and sounds of Marcel Camus’ film “Black Orpheus” which was based on a play by Moraes and introduced their music to the world.

Vinicius de Moraes died July 9, 1980.
