Brazilian singer-songwriter and guitarist.

Nascimento is famous for his falsetto and tonal range, as well for highly acclaimed songs such as "Maria, Maria", "Canção da América" ("Song from America"/"Unencounter"), "Travessia" (Bridges [Milton Nascimento song]), "Bailes da Vida", and "Coração de Estudante" ("Student's Heart").

Nascimento's international breakthrough came with his appearance on jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter's 1974 album Native Dancer. This led to widespread acclaim, and collaborations with stars such as Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, George Duke and Quincy Jones and the band Earth, Wind and Fire. His album Angelus (1994) features appearances by Pat Metheny, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Nana Vasconcelos, Jon Anderson, James Taylor, and Peter Gabriel. Nascimento worked with the pop rock band Duran Duran in 1993.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him in "Rhythm Music Magazine: RMM" Volumes 3-4, Issue 1 (1994), p. 109: "'After I wrote this song ['Angelus'], I was looking through my papers when I discovered I had been born at six o'clock in the evening. So I took a walk in myself.' A statement on the inside cover of Angelus says: 'If I hadn't been born in my time, at the right hour, maybe Milton Nascimento the person would not exist at all.'"
