Dorival Caymmi (at Rádio Nacional in 1938)


Brazilian singer, songwriter, actor, and painter active for more than 70 years beginning in 1933. His folkloric songs evoke the natural beauties of his State, Bahia, and he is considered the "father" of popular Brazilian music, having contributed to the birth of Brazil's bossa nova movement, and influencing decades of musicians to follow. Caymmi was almost always photographed with a guitar, relaxing over a long chair or "rede". In his 60-year career he produced about 20 records. Several of his samba pieces, such as "Samba da Minha Terra", "Doralice" and "Saudade da Bahia", have become staples of Música popular brasileira. Caymmi died at age 94 of kidney cancer and multiple organ failure on August 16, 2008, at his home in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro.

Source Notes

Originally this entry had the last name "Caymmy": Marcello Borges quotes a biography written by Stella Caymmy, one of his granddaughters.

On 21/10/14 Sy Scholfield changed the last name to "Caymmi," quoting from from the same biography: "Dorival Caymmi: o mar e o tempo" by Stella Caymmi (Editora 34, 2001), p. 34: "Quando Deraldo Caymmi nasceu, em 5 de novembro de 1912, o casal já tinha alugado uma casinha na rua do Bângala, 77 — hoje rua Luiz Gama — , onde também nasceu o quarto filho do casal, Dorival Caymmi, em 30 de abril de 1914, às 22h50."

Translation: When Deraldo Caymmi was born on 5 November 1912, the couple had rented a small house at 77 Bangala Street - today Luiz Gama street - where the fourth child, Dorival Caymmi, was also born, on 30 April 1914 at 22:50.
