Considered one of the most important composers and singers in the new Brazilian Music scenario, with his album Claroescuro deemed one of the top ten world music CDs of 2010 by the Boston Globe, Pedro Moraes´ career officially began 10 years ago with an unforseen episode of international acknowledgement. Mexican rising jazz star Magos Herrera, brought to wide audiences two songs by Pedro, which led him to a short and successfull tour to Mexico City and New York. Upon returning to Brazil, Pedro became one of the leaders of a generation that´s been breaking grounds in brazilian songwriting, organizing and taking part in several collective projects, such as the 'Brotherhood of Free Music'. Never losing sight of his opus as a composer, Pedro started, in 2003, a very successful parallel career as a samba interpreter, springing from the traditional bohemian neighborhood of Lapa, Rio de Janeiro, to nation-wide touring, mostly with the ensemble 'É com esse que eu vou', with whom he recorded the acclaimed album 'Samba do Baú' (the 'Treasure-Chest Samba'), dedicated to previously unreleased songs by the greatest masters in the history of this most brazilian genre (Paulinho da Viola, Cartola, Nelson Sargento and others). Since 2007, after recording his first solo album, Claroescuro, Pedro Moraes has been dedicating fully to promoting his music, with an intense schedule of concerts that has included Europe (England, Germany and Spain), Asia (India - Pedro is the first brazilian artist to have his CD released by an Indian label - and Sri Lanka), USA (three tours in 2010/2011, including one SXSW appearance, the Chicago World Music Festival, the Philadelphia Film and Music Festival and NY venues such as the NuBlu, SOB´s and Zinc Bar) and successful touring around Brazil, with outstanding response from audiences and press.
