CARLOS OLIVEIRA was born in Abaira, Bahia. His love for music, and the pride for his native land is reflected in his accomplishments as a musician. Early in his childhood he left rural life of his native state for Sao Paulo to study classical guitar. He graduated from the Music Conservatory Santa Cecilia in Santos and obtained Baccalaureate from the Faculdade Tupinamba of Sao Paulo. He studied with masters of high prominence including Attilio Bernardine well known for his insatiable search of perfection for every note and chord performed. Carlos Oliveira completed under him his studies on Harmony and History of Music. After completing more than 25 years of formal academic studies Carlos Oliveira joined the Conservatory of Music of Cubatao, Sao Paulo as a Professor and Guitar Representative of the Conservatory. He is a classical guitar performer and composer having repeatedly and successfully engaged in nationally prominent musical events. Encouraged by friends and fellow music scholars he recorded his first musical selection, choosing a baroque flavor to congeal works of other composers and his compositions. He selected compositions of amateur classical composers like Elomar Figueira Mello, an ecletic aquitect, Vidal Farias, Chico Buarque, Vinicius de Moraes, Toquinho, P. Gallo, Americo Jacomino and Antonio Carlos Jobim. All of them are of national and international acclaim. An extensive number of uniquely magisterial compositions and his crystalline sound while performing are his trademark. The music of Carlos Oliveira, the little boy from the rural Bahia, Brazil, will endure forever. C.Napoli.
