Acclaimed drummer

Portinho is one of a kind. A native of Brazil, he moved to the United States in the early 1970s and has left his mark on everything he has been part of: the creator of a signature style of drumming and approach to music that has inspired generations of musicians. He has collaborated and recorded with an extensive list of premier artists, including Gato Barbieri, Harry Belafonte, Herbie Mann, Dom Salvador, Paquito D’Rivera, Astrud Gilberto, Tania Maria, Nancy Wilson, Mongo Santamaria, Michel Legrand, and Ron Carter.
