Carlinhos Pandeiro de Ouro
City, State, etc.:
Carlinhos Pandeiro de Ouro (Carlinhos Tambourine of Gold) got his showbiz start early. As a seven-year-old kid named Carlos de Oliveira, living in Rio, he'd play his mother's cake pan, and his talent was soon noticed.
He'd join the rehearsals at the Mangueira samba school, and was asked by legendary Jamelão to become a regular performing member. He was hired for a small but important part in the film Orfeu Negro, Black Orpheus, and is the guitar-playing kid dancing with two other children in the film's final scene. He's the one who "makes the sun rise".
In 1966 Carlinhos took part in a nationwide pandeiro contest in Brazil, coming in first in a field of 500 participants, winning the Pandeiro de Ouro (Golden Tambourine) award. Hence his appellation.
Carlinhos has toured and performed with a number of Brazil's greatest musical artists, and nowadays makes his home in Los Angeles, California, where he continues to teach and perform.
