Lenine is Osvaldo Lenine Macedo Pimentel of Recife, Pernambuco, a part of Brazil's Nordeste noted for its deep musicality and shifting Afro-Brazilian rhythms. Towards the end of the '70s he made a move to Rio where there were more possibilities for a songwriter, taking the powerful Pernambuco sensibility with him.
His composition (together with Bráulio Tavares) A Roda do Tempo was recorded in 1989 by a well-known singer from his region of Brazil, Elba Ramalho, and thereafter he had compositions recorded by Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Maria Bethânia, Ney Matogrosso, O Rappa, Chico César, Pedro Luis e a Parede, and many others. His productions include "Segundo" by Elis Regina's daughter Maria Rita, "De uns tempos pra cá" by Chico César, and much else. He's performed on a broad range of recordings by other Brazilian artists.
Lenine has 10 of his own recordings released and has won five Latin Grammys.
