Ricardo Silveira

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Ricardo Silveira has been a professional musician since 1976, playing live and in studios with great names in Brazilian and international music. His name is present in the technical file of hundreds of records as a musician, arranger, producer and musical director. As a teenager, I liked to listen from Rock (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream) and Blues (BB King, John Mayal) to Brazilian Music (João Gilberto, Chico Buarque, Mutantes, Novos Baianos, Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento, Tom Jobim, Baden Powell). He also discovered Jazz by Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, George Benson and Wes Montgomery. He studied classical guitar, music theory and attended the National School of Music in Rio de Janeiro
