Rão Kyao

Real Name:
João Maria Centeno Gorjão Jorge
Profile:
Portuguese musician, saxophone and bamboo flute player. He mixes fado with oriental music from India, where he lived for some time.

He started in the Lisbon jazz circuit in the late 60s, traveling then to Denmark, Netherlands, Spain and France. His first solo albums were more jazz-oriented: "Malpertuis" (1976), "Bambu" (1977), "Goa" (1979), "Ritual" (1982) and "Macau O Amanhecer" (1984).

In the 80s he achieved some success with numerous gold and platinum albums: "Fado Bailado" (1983), "Estrada da Luz" (1984) and "Oásis" (1986). Gradually he entered Indian music and blended it with his traditional Portuguese roots. He also mixed fado, Indian music and flamenco with Ketama (2) on "Delirios Ibéricos" (1992).
