CANHOTO DA PARAIBA
Chico Soares, commonly known as Canhoto Da Paraíba (‘Lefty from Paraíba’), hails from that northeastern state of Brazil. Although his distinguished musicianship reached the United States in 1993 via the international release of his wonderful album Pisando Em Brasa (a.k.a. Walking On Coals, Caju), Canhoto’s musical journey has been followed by a limited contingent of Brazilian fans and a few worldwide aficionados. To them, he is a legend.
