The Top Ten

1
Tom Jobim
Tom Jobim was a master. I was a great composer, arranger, conductor, comparable Mozart. How come somebody can list together Jobim and Michael Telo. For the Lord sake...
I am splitting hairs. Tom Jobim or Chico Buarque? One or the other, hard to make a decision. Both of them define many traits of contemporary Brazilian music.

He's so cool like oh my G
[Newest]He was the most influential composer, arranger, conductor, producer, but not necessarily the best singer.

2Marisa Monte
Marisa monte is a huge star in Brazil known as a very sophisticated singer and song writer. Her voice, songs and stage presence is something beyond the ordinary... She is amazing brilliant! She was elected by the French Newspaper Le Monde as top 10 best singer in the world.

Marisa always inspires me! She is a great woman and artist. Her voice is extremely beautiful, it touches our souls and her songs are always very well chosen.

He combines everything: Great (eccentric) voice and out of the ordinary songs!
And then he is by now the Brazilian éminence grise, one couldn't get around this guy.
Caetano was very important to compile the African and indigenous heritage of the Brazilian music, and he was also important for the fight for democracy during the Brazilian dictatorship.

7Chico Buarque
Takes me where no other music can...
Chico Buarque is the best..!

8Andre Matos
Make the name of power metal in brazil
crating a label with angra and shaman inscripting
brazil's rock's
Used to sing for Angra, great range, great power, deserves to be here.
If you don't know Andre Mattos' power, listen to Shaman - Fairy Tale, or then Angra - Carry On, and many others. And Andre Mattos was supposed to be Iron Maiden's vocalist, but Bruce had got it through one position better. Andre Matos rocks!

She is the QUEEN of Brazil, incredible voice!
Shes a great singer, Very funny and have a strong voice. IVETE ROCKS!
[Newest]The best one! Queen of Brazil!

12Roberto Carlos
I guess who ever wrote this does not know anything about Brazilian music. if you place Roberto Carlos in the number 12 slot. Please correct your self just consider how many records he has sold, how many songs he has written and last all his concerts are sold out wherever he goes. This year (2014) alone he sold out all his concerts in the US and Mexico including Las Vegas MGM Grand. In Brazil he holds the record also of filling up the largest stadium for a concert. On top of all this he has sold more records than the Beatles or Elvis in Latin America. How dare you place him in the 12 position. He is by far the number one singer in Brazil since the sixties, with a hit records in every decade since then.
Roberto Carlos is still my favorite. He captures such emotion and I love the fact that his songs honor family, long lasting love, and tells fun little stories.
His voice is amazing! He and Julio Inglesias are my favourite singers of all time! All of his songs are really beautiful!
[Newest]Love him so much much much

13Cássia Eller
C�ssia Rejane Eller (December 10, 1962 - December 29, 2001) was a Brazilian musician. She was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1962, but spent most of her adolescence in Bras�lia. In 1990 she returned to Rio and her recording career took off. Her most popular album is the live recording Ac�stico that she did for MTV Brasil (essentially the Brazilian version of an MTV Unplugged album), and her best-known hit songs are her cover of Malandragem, originally written by Cazuza and "Segundo Sol". Eller is known for her fusion of rock and MPB, and for her extremely deep and husky singing voice. She is also notable as one of Brazil's most prominent lesbian artists. Her sexuality, along with her musical style, has caused some to draw comparisons with Ani DiFranco and the Indigo Girls as well as Melissa Etheridge.

14Cazuza
Cazuza (April 4, 1958 � July 7, 1990) was a Brazilian composer, singer and poet, born Agenor Miranda Ara�jo Neto in Rio de Janeiro. Along with Raul Seixas, Renato Russo and Os Mutantes, Cazuza is considered one of the best exponents of Brazilian rock music. In 1989, he admitted publicly for the first time that he had AIDS and released his last album: Burguesia. Cazuza was openly bisexual but was not active in the gay movement. However his openness about being a person with AIDS helped to change public perceptions and attitudes about HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.
