Tom Zé, of Irará in the Bahian Recôncavo, studied music at the Federal University of Bahia, in Salvador. One of the founders of Tropicália, in 1968 he won first place in the IV Festival de Música Popular Brasileira, televised nationally in Brazil, with the song São Paulo, Meu Amor.
In 1976 he released (among other records, before and after) Estudando o Samba (Studying Samba), anything but straight-ahead, odd and daring. It was this record which David Byrne stumbled across, prompting him to call Arto Lindsay and ask what kind of country is Brazil, that has such an artist and so few people know of him.
Tom's latest record is Tropicália Lixo Lógico, available via email at email@example.com. It comes autographed, of course!
