A living legend of the bossa nova, singer, composer and fabulous guitarist, Toquinho is one of the most beloved artists in Jazz San Javier, thanks to his two previous performances in which his music shined as bright as his friendliness and charisma with the public. We admire Toquinho's facet as a composer, which took off with the great worldwide success, "Que Maravilla", composed alongside Jorge Ben. We also admire his collaborations with other artists like Chico Buarque, Francis Hime, Maria Creuza or Sadao Watanabe and, of course, the great Vinicius de Moraes, who marked a milestone in the history of the bossa nova. But above all we admire his absolute dominion of the guitar, an instrument which he has consummately mastered.
