He began his artistic career as a pianist plays at fifteen, when she studied at the National School of Music. Later went on to compose their own songs and assembled a band, which eventually sponsored by Gilberto Gil.
From 1978 he had some songs recorded by big names of the MPB, as As Frenéticas (samba "Vesuvius"), Ney Matogrosso (the fox "Seu Tipo") and Maria Alcina (the frevo "Folia no Matagal", two years later rewritten by Ney Matogrosso) - all in partnership with Luis Carlos Góis.
His compositions sought to combine satire and humor. In 1980 he participated in the MPB Shell festival of Rede Globo in his underwear singing a mocking song "Nostradamus", which did not qualify but was known by the public. By this time he recorded his first LP, "Olhar Brasileiro". But success would burst in 1982, when he flirted with the incipient pop-rock, the LP "Cantando no Banheiro" with "Barrados no Baile"(with Luis Carlos Góis)," Cabelos Negros"(with Luiz Antonio de Cássio) and "Rock da Cachorra" (Léo Jaime).
Two years later, he became famous with the LP "tacky-chic," whose title track, better known as "Home," was a social satire, and nonsense in the climate of the theater of the time. In 1986, he released "Dusek on your" to "Adventure" and "I sailed on You," one of the most moving songs of MPB, then rewritten by Zizi Possi. In 1989, he returned to the scene with the musical "Shop of Horrors," which acted in the role of the dentist. In 90 years, away from the role of singer, played the character of Captain Gonçalo-Mor in the novel "Xica da Silva," the former Network Headline. He served as director of shows and at the end of the decade, again showed some work as a comedian and singer, one of Carmen Miranda.
