Paco Reinaldet

Paco Reinaldet born in Campo Grande, and after living for a while in the capital of Brazil, Brasilia, he

moved to São Paulo, where study music and worked as a gigging musician, playing from blues-jazz

to the erudite, as a way of survival.

At that time, he was immersed in São Paulo's bohemian music scene, participating in several music


In 2000 he went to Rio de Janeiro in an attempt to start an authorial musical career. Been

unsuccessful, persisted in his choice of music by going to live in Lima-Peru, learning Latin music.

Years later, he went to Wales-UK to study and play.

Paco devoted his time to refining the instrument timbre and also embracing “indeterminism” as an

integral part of his songwriting process. He explored the silence, raised the noise to the status of

music, and, despite not liking labels, he considers himself a contemporary composer thus,

consolidating his own style.



“The strongly melodic motifs sometimes hide the harmonic and rhythmic changes he uses, but

that is precisely what establishes Paco as more than a musician, an artist.
