Riachão é a alma forte e linda da Bahia!
Riachão is the strong and beautiful soul of Bahia!
Clementino Rodrigues, better known as "Riachão" was born in Salvador in 1921, and he is easily Bahia's most beloved artist. He's been singing in parties and shows since he was nine years old and composed his first samba at twelve years of age. And he's never stopped.
His "Cada Macaco no Seu Galho" (Every Monkey on His Branch) was recorded by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil upon their return to Bahia from exile (one line of the song is, translating: "My branch is Bahia!").
He is an indominatible spirit, the life and light of the party, an extraordinary and wonderful human being. And this in spite of grievous personal tragedy. The final song in all his shows now is "Somente Ela", Only Her, for his wife, Dalva.
