Ernâni Alvarenga

Profile:
Ernâni Alvarenga (born 10/6/1914 São Paulo, SP - died 1/1/1992 Rio de Janeiro, RJ), composer of "Salário Mínimo" and "Dinheiro Não Há" was also a radio artist of some prominence until he acquired a permanent problem in his vocal chords. Creator of the style known as spoken samba (maybe a sequel to his vocal problem), his enormous influence in the Portela samba school is acknowledged by the many sambas written to praise that school that regard him as one of its historic figures.
