Raul Seixas (1972)

Biography

Brazilian rock composer, singer, songwriter and producer, sometimes called the "Father of Brazilian Rock" and "Maluco Beleza" (hip cat), the last one roughly translated as "Groovy Nutcase".

His body of work consists of 21 albums released throughout his 26-year career. His musical style is varied, though Rock'n'Roll, folk, and ballads form much of his oeuvre. Raul Seixas also wrote songs that blended non-Anglo styles, including variations of rhythms typical of his native Northeast Brazil like Forró, Baião, Maxixe, Candomblé drumming, and in fact, often used more than one style in the same song, such as in "Let Me Sing, Let Me Sing".

Raul Seixas developed a musical style that emphasized the free-spirit and the mystic. His album Gita (1974), influenced by figures such as Aleister Crowley, expresses his views directly. Many songs in Gita were co-written with his frequent collaborator, then-fellow mystic and future worldwide bestselling author Paulo Coelho.

Seixas got into self-exiling himself in the USA following the presumed detention by government repressive agents, where his American wife of the time was living. (Seixas was legally married two times to Edith Wisner and Gloria Vaquer Seixas.) He has three daughters Simone Vannoy, Scarlet Vaquer Seixas and Vivian Seixas.

He died of a heart attack in São Paulo on 21 August 1989 at 5:00 AM at age 44. The cardiac arrest was the result of acute pancreatitis brought on by his diabetes and not having taken insulin the night before. Every year on Seixas' birthday, legions of fans, including thousands of impersonators (many even changing their last name to Seixas as a sign of passionate admiration), throw a parade in his honour in downtown São Paulo.
