Raul Seixas

Playlist

Raul Santos Seixas, born 28 June 1945 – 21 August 1989,  was a Brazilian rock composer, singer, songwriter and producer. He is sometimes called the “Father of Brazilian Rock” and “Maluco Beleza”, the last one roughly translated as “Groovy Nutcase”. He was born in Salvador (Bahia), Brazil, and died of pancreatitis in São Paulo. Every year on Seixas’ birthday, legions of fans, including thousands of impersonators (many even changing their last name to Seixas as a sign of idolatry), throw a parade in his honor in downtown São Paulo.
